It occurs to me that many here are unaware that there are alternatives to Xbox Live for Multiplayer gaming.
Some gamers that have the original Xbox's have already discovered XBConnect. I have played with others on there a few years ago.. XBConnect is software that runs on your PC and will let you play Microsoft Xbox/360 games and Sony PSP games with players from around the world. XBConnect works by making your Xbox think it is participating in a local area network (LAN). Best part of all, it’s completely legal, and completey free to use. Any System Link game for the Xbox console is available to play on XBConnect.
A good guide to setup can be found here or on youtube.

Some of the Xbox Supported games include:

Yes Xlink Kai is what I have used, works on mac and windows from memory.

Sadly it doesn't work with 360 games (actually it does work with some I think), but you can use a 360 to play original games that support it, I played a good amount of halo 1 and 2 on my elite using Xlink Kai.

Worked surprisingly well.
