> I just checked out Lik-sang and the 128 mb cart will be out soon. It won't support EEPROM but will be SRAM. What does this mean in terms of "backing up" carts and roms?

it means that any game that uses EEPROM to store its save-game info will have to be patched to work with the FA-linker carts which only have SRAM. Most (if not all) of the existing games have IPS patches available to do this. The patch modifies the EEPROM code to work with SRAM. It is transparent to the game code which does not care about the TYPE of save-memory.
