DC Dev. Links

Heya Fellow SX'ers,

I've been away for a short bit and came back to happily see a Dreamcast Dev. link and category added to the site. Ever since I started doing some Genesis development (which really wasn't too long ago) I've been wanting to work with a console with more power and features (and a better compiler with more libraries :D) and the Dreamcast seemed like one of the top choices. Anyway, I've been spending the last week doing quite a bit of research. I'm currently working on an updated tutorial to install and setup a cross-compiler with KOS in a windows environment (using cygwin and gnu/gcc tools).

Anyway, I thought it would be nice to start a post listing Dreamcast Development related URLs for those interested in getting started. Feel free to add your list of links and maybe they'll make their way to the DC Dev page here.
