    nope carts are measured in megabits not megabytes!!

    Most gba roms are 32 or 64megabit so u can fit 1 or 2 games on a 64megabit cart!

    Altho some of the newer games are 128 megabit!

    Then buy the 1G cart... Remember you can download your saves to your PC so you can 'swap' games at will.

    Works fine for me. (but I wouldnt take a GBA on holiday... how many games do you need while sitting on a beach?)
    Try Gentoo, the linux source distro...

    It's more cost effective than buying originals at 30 quid a piece tho innit?
