    Is it possible to softmod it? I mean not having a hard-drive and all.

    Am I able to mod it via USB2.0 flash drive or CD-R?

    What can be achieved by modding on PS2? Backups? Emulation?

    Probably not because the playstation 2 doesnt have system files on the hd that you install to mod. I mean the xbox is the only system that has system filkes on the hardrive to mess around with. And nobody has made a program to softmod the ps2.

    Well. I know I can use an emulator on Gamecube via SD-card. However I lack the adapter (or a way of getting it, as well.) and the SD card itself. -_-

    And the playstation 2 does have a hd but you have to buy a hd and a network adapter to hook it up. And the ps2 lacks the system files on the hd to softmod. And i never knew you could play emulators on the gamecube. you learn something new everyday.

    I believe the emulators require GC Linux installed, to be honest, I'm completely oblivious to the procedure to do anything modding-wise.

    Probably because the only way to play emulators on anything is to mod it in some way.

    ???

    Am I able to mod it via USB2.0 flash drive or CD-R?
    cd-r, sure. usb 2.0, nope, the ps2 takes usb 1.1 only because its ole skool.

    What can be achieved by modding on PS2?
    lots

    Backups?
    yes

    Emulation?
    yeah

    for gc, a simple way is to use sdload with old school ar, or sd media launcher(aka the sell-out ar made to make $$$ off the homebrew community, while still allowing for a homebrew community; mixed feelings?)
    emuls can be found at dcemu
