I don't know how to use this one and I've not found a guide. Could someone point me in the direction of one or give me some tips?

From what I can remember reading once was that only a few 2d are playable, and by that I mean you might be able to get 15fps MAX. Other than that, I think you needed to have an ISO burned onto a CDr in the ISO format (so by just burning the ISO file onto a disc)
But I don't think pcsxDC was worth the effort of trying, even though it might be fun to play around with.
If I were you I'd stick to the Bleemcast discs if you actually want to play PSX games. All other PSX games should be played on PSX or emulated on an other machine.

If you're still interested, read this (http://www.ngemu.com/articles.php?action=view&rid=25) guide, I found it at a dull moment at school so I started to look at the articles page of ngemu.

Ya sure i spent bout 1min downloading the basic PSX its self and another hour wondering why its not working and getting the idea on whats wrong then another hour on finding and downloading gfx,sound,controler,netplay, plugings and again another 45min finding and getting the bios i had to go to limewire for that one and after all that another hour configing it but when i got it finaly got it working it was a bit slow at start up but after that it runs good. the opening fmv for FF8's sound skiped a bit but other than that its all good

I'm pritty sure it will come in handy its kinda cool i got a PSX on my computer and that i can play the games i got on CD. so i can just go out a buy the game and not having to worry bout the system

Heh, I think you are not talking about PscxDC right?
This thread was about the Dreamcast version of PCSX.
Sidenote: if you want to do it properly you DO have to own the console otherwise there would be no way to obtain the BIOS file legally ;)

ahh i guess i've been in the wrong place all along lol i thought this was for the PSX emu but P2P sharing has always been on the line of legal/ilegal so getting bios the way i did is legal sorry to bother yall

You need to learn the law better. P2P sharing of copyrighted works is not "on the line". Copying of works where the copyright belongs to someone else is unlawful. This is true whether you are the one distributing the copy or the one receiving it. The single exception to this unlawfulness is fair use, acts of copying specifically enumerated in copyright law as lawful even without the copyright holder's permission.
Fair use includes making a copy of something you've paid for and possess, for your own use. It does not include acquiring a copy that someone else has made of something you've already paid for, nor does it include continuing to possess a backup copy after you've sold or given away the copy you owned.
So getting a copy of the bios the way you did is absolutely not lawful. Understandable, perhaps, but not lawful.
P.S. I am not a lawyer, so if you rely on what I tell you to figure out what the law allows you to do, you may find yourself in jail. You've been warned.
