Funny guy... lol
Heres the #1 Guide u'll need written by charlie.
Although its for the messiah2 modchip, the methods and tips can be applied to any modchip. That guide was served as my holy bible for the first few months of my modding "carreer". That i can thank charlie for.
And about the hot glue thing, I would not recommend it as I dont like having liquid in my ps2, I would say to just use Electric Tape, as I have used to for every modchip installation I've done. They are easy to take off, and work just as well as hot glue. They dont look as good, but hey, its not like ur gonna stare at ur mobo while u play ur ps2...
You can place the tape anywhere on the ps2 mobo but just make sure u dont use too much to block airflow.
And about the cheapest place for DMS3, I would say head over to foundmy.com. The best place for dms3.
And for your equipment, head over to RadioShack and get ur self the following materials:
15-Watt Soldering Pencil with Grounded Tip
.032" Diameter Lead-Free Solder
Adjustable Wire Stripper/Cutter
Anti-Static Wrist Strap with Cord
(a few other required materials such as wires/tips are found in the guide)
They should be pretty cheap and are easily found in ur local radioshack.
Good Luck on ur Modding.
BTW, be sure to do a few test points on some crap pc material before messin' ur ps2.
