    the root directory is exactly that, the "beginning" of the card. to try and explain it better its what you see when you open the card in the file manager before opening any folders on it.

    try wikipedia next time too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_directory

    Do you mean questions 2 and 3 instead?

    Anyway, for homebrews and emulators on the DS the most important thing that you need is DLDI Patching.

    I could awnser question 2.
    Make a folder named: SNES
    In the root of your card and store your snes roms inside the SNES dir you just made.
    If you simply did read the readme it would have told you to do so.
