I use a Gameshark and boot disc on my US Dreamcast to play Japanese imports.  It's always been reliable.  I would imagine you being able to do that  as well.  

EDIT: My semantics were unclear.

I have a boot disc that I used to play Japanese games on my US Dreamcast.  Some discs I used were backups, and it worked for me.  Just give it a shot - it's not like the Dreamcast can break the discs or permanently damage itself...

Holy cow, my semantics were unclear in my post.  D'oh!  Anyway, I meant to say that it should work for you.  If I can use my boot disc to play imports, you should be able to as well.
