Execution methods

Loading the compiled RUNIX binary (PS-EXE) into a PlayStation may be done by using a Serial Adapter (such as the Net Yaroze Serial Cable) or Parallel Port device (Xplorer). Another method is by installing a modchip within the PlayStation and burning a CD-ROM containing the executable data that will allow the system to boot burned discs.
