    I've heard that it's easier said than done to convert EXE to ELF.

    In PS2 emulation (on the system, not on a PC), some emulators come as as EXE file, because the programers assume you would burn it to a CDR.

    If possible, I would prefer to run it from a USB stick. Is there a way to run an EXE from a USB stick as if it were an ELF? (I know how to set-up CUE and CNF files, if that would help).
