Yeah, there is an easy way, but it's an expensive one. It's called a WODE. WODE is a solderless chip you connect to your DVD Drive. It comes with a standard for your Wii with a build-in LCD screen on which you can select a game. The standard has an USB port and an SD Card slot in it. The USB port is for playing games, and the SD Card slot for updating the firmware of the WODE.
For more information, see the WODE forums.
