Good luck getting development tools and information on the Dreamcast if you''re just an individual without a bunch of money to spend.

If you''re willing to step down a generation, you can get a Playstation setup with a GameShark/ProActionReplay adapter and a PC-Link cable that, in conjunction with a cross-compiling version of the GNU tool set (gcc, etc), will allow you to develop software on the Playstation.

Also, there''s similiar setups (often as part of a console ''copier'' system) that allow for using standard off-the-shelf consoles as low-end development systems for the N64, the Color Game Boy and earlier consoles.

I haven''t seen any similar type of setup that allows for Dreamcast development, with the exception of some information and an assembler for writing small VMU games.
