If you checked the Swapmagic manual, you can boot homebrew software that is placed as mass:SWAPMAGIC/SWAPMAGIC.ELF (Or as SMBOOTx.ELF, where x is a number.... but only if you know what you're doing).

If you intend to play your games via a USB device, you might want to check out PS2ESDL (A Playstation 2 game loader that was tuned for USB devices only, to offer better performance and game compatibility rates): http://psx-scene.com/forums/f19/play...ps2esdl-63375/
There's a guide on PS2ESDL's main project page on how to use it.
But I do suggest that you find a way to launch homebrew first (Or you won't be able to proceed anyway).
Also, if your PS2 isn't too new, you might want to install FMCB v1.8b on one of your MCs, then you won't have to use your Swapmagic disc everytime you want to launch homebrew software.
What's your PS2's model anyway?
