    DC About the bios

    I was reading the instructions on how to get a bios and i am very confused. I know you probably dont want to give me the bios so could i get some instructions which are easy to understand.

    >1. Get a BBA, serial cable or LAN Adapter for the Dreamcast
    >2. Hook this up to your PC.
    >3. Download dc-load/dc-tool here. Get dc-load-ip for the BBA and LAN >Adapter and dc-load serial if u have a serial cable connection. You also >have to download the patch for the LAN Adapter.
    >4. Burn the server software and load it up on the Dreamcast
    >5. Invoke the client with the following arguments:
    >-d bios.bin -a 0x0 -s 0x200000
    >6. Wait for the transmission to complete.
    >7. The BIOS should be now contained in a file called bios.bin

    These were the instructions and i have no idea what a BBA is, (step 1-2)
    what server software i am supposed to load in the dreamcast (step 4)
    and how to "invoke the client with the following arguments"(step 5).

    Could someone please help me.
    Thanks

    BBA = Broad Band Adaptor I believe
    The server software is AFAIK the dc-load-ip software

    Invoking the client should simply mean running it on the command line with the following after it:

    >-d bios.bin -a 0x0 -s 0x200000

    I'm probably totally wrong in most of this though, so don't go taking my word as gospel
