Me and my friend tried to play battlefront 2 in system link using only 2 systems 2 games and an ethernet crossover cable... The cable is good. The xbox's did recognize the connection, but whenever my friend created a game on his XBOX i couldnt see it when i searched for it on my xbox. We dont have anything different, same game version, same downloaded content, what could be wrong?

I don' think it makes a difference... but try a straight-thru cable, its what i use and has never failed.

what kind of cable do you use if you want to connect an Xbox and an Xbox 360 to play system link?

Console to console requires a crossover cable. Two xboxes need to communicate to each other, so a cable that allows for 2 way data transmission is required.

More than 2 Xboxes require a hub, so a patch cable is required. A cable that allows one way transmissions.
