Does not the dreamcast also read cd-roms? Like many dvd's do, I'll
bet it does. Cd-rom reading hardware is very cheap nowadays,
especially if the motor and such are already there (for gd-roms ;) I
could be wrong, but it would suck if they didn't. Make a cd-r boot
disk of some kind.

This *would* be interesting, people are already hacking or trying to
hack dreamcasts, poll ports etc etc etc. Give them more incentive to
do so. Creative a Dnet boot image. Make available download off the
net. You don't have to use all 650mb. I'd rather see DCs with
ethernet ports (link those suckers up to a perproxy :) but even
dialing them all up once a couple days would be great.
