Ok, calm down, remove the battery case from your Wiimote, and open the SD card cover on your Wii. See the red buttons? Hit the Wii one first, then the Wiimote one second. When the Wiimote lights up for the player slot, you're good to go. Make sure the Wii is on first though.

You need Gamecube controllers to play Gamecube games.

...Once you start a Gamecube game, the Wii Remote will shut off. You can't use a Wii Remote in a Gamecube game, you need a Gamecube controller.

You need to buy a GameCube controller. Lol. Seriously, can't you figure that you cannot play NGC games with a Wiimote? :|
