    What can the Wii do?

    Hello friends I'm new here. Just found this place, which has tons of information, and would just like ta ask specific questions that are on my mind.

    Since i am considering buying a Wii Console for Christmas i would like to know what its capabilities are.

    a)First of all, i know there is a softmod for running backups. I would like to know, are there many different ways to do these? Can it be done with specific models, or other there hardware and software restrictions?

    b)Also I heard it plays Gamecube Games. Besides making a Backup of the original Disc and running it, can it run as an .iso directly via some homebrew, or is it completely necessary to burn a disc every time?
    BTW does it playback as well as the Gamecube does, or are there compatibility issues and conflicts like there with emulators (Dolphin eg). I mean does it provide native support for GC Games or they run in some kind of emulated environment?

    c)Does it offer emulators for other Nintendo Systems? N64 preferably, is what i am interested in!

    Guys i would really appreciate your input, since this is going to directly influence whether I'm going to purchase it or not. I would want to know what my limits are before i do!

    Thanx a lot for your help. I have been trying since yesterday but without success. I tried on a friends Wii that had 4.3E right out of the box. Do i still need to patch IOS files or is it OK since it is already pre-configured in Latest version? I tried IOS236 Installer and WiiMod 2.9 but i always got errors in replacing TIOS files. Can i still proceed into installing the usb loader? Do i need to recover NAND or anything?

    BTW The mauifrog link doesn't work since yesterday i think. So i viewed the cached page from Google and just started with Modmii.
