    Homebrew emulators

    Hello everyone,
    In the near future I am planning on buying a Nintendo Wii, but I have a choice to make between Wiikey'ed one (v.2) and a softmodded one. I'm leaning towards a chipped one, but I have one more question before I make my final decision.
    Can you burn emulators with games on dvd's and play them? I don't want to mess around with the installation of the homebrew channel, and I'm wondering if it's possible, like on PS2 where you could burn Snes9x along with a few games on a dvd and play them. Specifically I'm interested if it's possible with the wii equivalents of snes9x and visual boy advance.

    Cheers

    PS: I apologise for my English, it's not my primary language.

    I suppose you could boot emulators by using bannerbomb but it'd be a real pain to have to do that every time. Installing the homebrew channel is nothing to worry about and it can be done easily on a chipped or on a non chipped Wii. The whole process of installing the channel would take about 5 minutes. Not sure if roms can be loaded onto DVD though but they will work on an attached USB HDD.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Thanks for the answer, I guess that having both chipped and softmodded Wii wouldn't hurt me one bit
