    ya it downloaded as a .cdi so i burned it using a windows program called Disc Juggler that should do the job.

    if it's a cd image just do:
    cdrecord dev=0,0,0 speed=4 -data foo.cdi

    you dev and speed may be different.

    I had it running on the DC a while ago with the xmame and prboom working too! Real slow, but still cool.. I think there were a few xmame games that worked full speed (real old shit). They are working on a x-box linux too!

    doesnt look to good on a TV, but it's still very cool. I have no mouse either so i can run X, but it's not really that useful.
