Just wanted to take time out and say a big thank you to maui for this tutorial. I am a about a 6-7 on a scale of 1 to 10 as far as cpu knowledge goes, but a 0 in this world. But i read through the guide about 9 times and slowly followed each step and now have a working softmodded wii. Having some issues with the loaders cfg and wiiflow and am still a little confused on the forwarders part of things. But i am new so i will continue to search and read and if i am still stumped how long until i can ask for help and not get the big hammer?? lol. Thanks again and i used to live on Kauai for 3 years back in the 80's so if you reside in hawaii then you are very lucky.
