    Alright go to Dinozambas's video guide for some interesting info you may need. It's top notch.

    If you need any more help, I have set up a basic FAQ:

    Q: What if I wanted to play Metal Slug 2 but it isn't working because I am missing some files, what do I do?

    A: You have to get a NEO GEO bios or neogeo.zip and out the all of the contents inside the zip into mslug2.zip.

    Q: OK, I did all of the instructions on for Dinozambas's video guide and i tried GALAGA but it isn't working because it is missing some files for some strange reasons so what do I do?

    A: What you would have to do is look at the files you are missing and then rename the ones that look the same but have a different exentsion.

    EXAMPLE:
    You are so called missing on the MAME Emulator:
    1c.bin
    1d.bin
    2n.bin
    5c.bin

    The files in your rom/.zip are called:
    prom-4.2n
    prom-3.1c
    prom-1.1d
    prom-2.5c

    The solution? Rename them to 5c.bin and so on.

    If everything else fails then the answer maybe it isn't compatitble.

    If you need any resources for finding the roms/sets you need go to:
    www.mameworld.net/maws/

    P.S. Make sure you put the roms in:
    ROMS/MAME/roms/
    not
    MAME/ROMS

    I hope it helps.
