Something I'd like to share with those who may have never heard of it...

Here is a Sega Dreamcast SYSTEM-DISC 2. These discs are sometimes referred to as "boot-discs" but they should not be mistaken for the boot-discs which were used to boot illegal Dreamcast backup discs.

These discs were used to enable a retail Sega Dreamcast unit to read Sega Dreamcast GD-R (http://segakatana.com/hardware.php?cat=dcdev&id=hkt06) media encoded in the same region as the unit. The disc is given the number two because there was a System Disc released for the Sega Saturn. They were mostly handed out to Sega Dreamcast developers (first and third-party), as well as reviewers.

Here is the a screenshot taken when this disc is inserted into a retail Dreamcast unit.
When the individual/company sees this screen, they should insert the Dreamcast GD-ROM game.
Once they do, the Sega Dreamcast reboots and loads the game content.

This reminds me, I still need to try to see if there's any difference between the beta and full versions of Sega GT =P.

Lol, there's always the "swap-disc" method for those without a System-Disc 2...
