    OK considering how I can't find any good starter guides I have a few questions

    I have a slim PSP, I want to run commercial store bought UMD's, backups, emulators and homebrew, such as PSPtube and the NES, SNES, and PS1 emulators.

    I downloaded a PS1 eboot. What is an eboot? Do I still need to load the PS1 emulator first?

    What firmware should I install?

    How do I know whether or not something works with my firmware? Will homebrew designed for "OE" firmware work for "M33"?

    Eboots are basically the PSP's .exe files. No, IIRC the actual emulator is in the PSP's firmware.
    3.90 M33-2 (I think thats the latest one) Always go with the latest Dark_Alex release.
    If it is a homebrew, if it's 1 folder it'll probably work, if it actually says made for Slim it'll work. If it comes in 2 folders, eg %FOLDER and FOLDER, it is 1.50 only, you can try eLoader 1.000.
