    I'm a total noob, and I have been searching the net for this answer.

    Right now the only way to play Gamecube Backups on Wii is to have a modchip? Right!?
    Could the Backloader by used or converted in the future to play Gamecube backups.

    Yes Currently Modchips are the only way to play GC backups. If a Backup Loader will soon play GC backups is unknown It probably will.

    Here's a quick translation. Refer back to the original article for the links to the programs and the compatibility lists.

    Necessary materials:

    - A Wii capable of running homebrew

    - A Gamecube Controller

    - An SD card (2GB recommended)

    - An SD Gecko Adapter

    - An original Gamecube game

    Necessary Software:

    - RVL-mine-v5.wad.out.wad, it is included in the discs of several games. You can use the Wufe application to extract it.

    - Homebrew Channel by Team Twiizers

    - Wii Gamecube Homebrew Launcher 0.2 by Mega Man.

    - SD-Boot 0.4 b8 by Emu_kidid

    - An image of Gamecube game in either ISO or GCM format

    Utilities:

    - GCMUtility 0.5 - > to reduce the space used by the images, and fit more on the SD card

    - Pre-Patcher v2 - > to patch the images, allowing some originally incompatible games to work (included in SD-Boot v0.4).

    Procedure:

    1. - Copy to the SD card you will use:

    In the root:
    - The file RVL-mine-v5.wad.out.wad
    - The file sd-boot-0.4b8-B.dol (included in SD-Boot 0.4 b8) and rename it to start.dol

    In the apps folder:
    - The folders GCBooterHomebrew and MIOSPatchingWADInstaller included in the Wii Gamecube Homebrew Launcher 0.2. These folders are ready to use via the Homebrew Channel.

    ATTENTION: If you have problems with the image, and the SD-Boot and the games are in black and white, use this version of GCBooterHomebrew that solves the problem.

    2. - In the SD card that you are going to use in the SD Gecko, do the following thing (if you're only going to use one card, you should do it in that one):

    - Create a folder in the root called “GCGAMES”.
    - Copy the Gamecube images (ISO or GCM format) to the GCGAMES folder.

    3. - Remove the memory cards and SD-Gecko that you may have plugged in.

    4. - Insert the original Gamecube disc.

    5. - Go to the Homebrew Channel and execute MIOSPatchingWADInstaller, a screen will come out saying to press A to install and B to uninstall. Press A. You'll return to the homebrew channel.

    6. - Execute GCBooterHomebrew (in the banner it'll say GCBoot), this will start SD-Boot 0.4 b8, and a message will appear telling you to put the SD-Gecko in Slot B and to push A.

    7. - At this point put the SD-Gecko with the 2nd SD card (if you have two), or take out the SD card from the Wii's SD slot and put it in the SD Gecko in the 2nd Gamecube memory card slot, and press A.

    8. - If everything is right, your games that are in the GCGAMES folder will be displayed. You will have to select which one you want to load, choose the options in the "Settings", and run it.

    F.A.Q.:
    Q. The games I like don't work
    A. Check the compatibility lists in the tutorial, and more importantly, help improve them.

    Q. When I execute GCBooter it comes out black and white
    A. Use THIS version of GCBooterHomebrew that solves the problem (Patcher by TheFireRed)

    Q. When I try to load an application in HBC it stays at 0% and does nothing
    A. Remove the Gamecube memory cards and SD Gecko from your Gamecube memory slots.

    Q. In the list, it says a game works but I can't get it to load.
    A. The compatibility between the Wii and Gamecube is different.

    Yes I have to agree with mercluke as GCOS can actually force the game to load by editing the output display. That may be totally wrong (probably is) but I have found that it can boot troublesome games such as F-Zero GX.
