Update - just found this on Wikipedia....by MDLSanDiego
A GameCube controller is required to play GameCube titles, as neither the Wii Remote nor the Classic Controller functions in this capacity. A Nintendo GameCube Memory Card is also necessary to save, as the Wii internal flash memory will not save GameCube games.
So I guess I need to go buy ANOTHER controller. Sigh.
