Better for you to get a modchip perhaps. That way you can just put in the disc and play. Just don't update to 4.2. It'll cost you a little though. Some interesting developments in the modchip scene too with Wode and Wiikey Fusion, bringing the benefits of softmod to the hardmod world.
You will need to find a modchip site and enter your Wii serial nunber to check which modchip would be best for your Wii.
Not that difficult really, I managed as a complete novice a few months back when finding a Wiikey2 before I went softmod.
If you need further help with that do let us know, we are more of a softmod site at the moment but sometimes we can go hardmod.
You don't need to be very good with computers to softmod though. This tutorial http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html has you download an archive which you drop directly to an SD card, easy peasy.
