    1 - No ROM sites, remove that link NOW.

    2 - Self-booting images mean they can be played without modding the dreamcast as you heard. You will either use DiscJuggler (CDI) or Nero (MDF/MDS) to burn the disc image.

    For this boot CD I linked you to, you burn it like you would a game (so for this you'd use DiscJuggler since it's a CDI), and you simply put it in your dreamcast and start it, then it'll show a 3D image of a reindeer (if I remember right) and tell you to put the actual game disc in and press a key.

    Then it starts the game.
