You have encountered the infamous 'Red Ring of Death' problem that occurs in many Xbox systems. The lights are actually separated into four seperate areas, and depending on which ones are red for you is supposedly some error code (either hardware, software etc). In most peoples cases they need to get it replaced. (this is a widespread problem for Microsoft, and they usually do all the work for free). Your first options would be to run through all the normal things, unplug it, remove and reseat the harddrive, etc (I'm sure you've tried all this many times over by now). The second thing to do is call Xbox support at 1-800-4MY-XBOX (9am-1am est, 6am-10pm pst). The first things they will probably have you do are the things I mentioned above. When they don't work, they will most likely be sending you a box in which to send them your machine for repairs. My suggestion is to do it as quickly as possible. The least amount of Halo3 you miss, the better
