Regarding Eugene's SNES thread above.
There actaully IS a way to make snes run on an unmodded console, for even a half-newb. I'll probably get warned for this, but you can add umcdr functionality to SNES, just like you can add it to any elf that utilizes cdvd.irx. Granted it's a GHETTO way of doing it. You just have to know how to get into it. There is a second way that I will not get into with anyone at all. I agree though, everyone just needs to f'n search and read. Every forum I'm a member of, I have counted at least 20 different threads asking the same damn thing. Either running on an unmodded system, or hdd suppport. They ask, you answer, and they still don't f'n listen.
