since you are absolutely new to it, just use google for gamecube linux and get your reading glasses out. it isnt easy. it is an exploit in a certain online game, which allows you to load the gamecube linux os onto a 32MB memory card. you can tehn stream the raw data from a game to your pc system and rip it to the drive. this cannot be burned, cause gamecubes read the games backwards, but you can stream it back to the system and play the game... good luck. it is a long painstaking process, and isnt even worth it, to me. but i did it a while back, so it works.

to the first reply:

by the way, i like the pic, just probably be better to not respond if you dont know though. cause people like me just look through the list of posts with 0 replys, and you make it have one by doing that. funny pic though, ill have to email that to some people.

Gotcha. I know about the GC, but I just couldn't understand what he was asking about. Especially when he hit the "Homebrewed codes" I couldn't understand where he was going with that....
