Do not believe what's told.
The Sega Saturn 's hardware consists of inline Hitachi SH2 and Motorola 68000 processors, SPU and graphics blitter. The only thing which is backwards compatible from the Dreamcast is the SH2 CPU's because the Dreamcast uses Hitachi SH4.
There is absolutely NO WAY to simply run Saturn games on the Dreamcast ala backwards compatibility, it's totally different hardware.
Emulation of the Saturn is also not possible due to the restrictions the Dreamcast hardware imposes in doing so.
In short...........no you cannot play Sega Saturn games on the Dreamcast, ever.
There are however ports of a few games for the Saturn that are on the Dreamcast.

technically it does work but technically it doesnt
it sits in the dreamcast and a progress bar goes up VERY slowly for about 8 minutes and then says "insert Virtual On Game Disc"
im guessing it loaded some crap onto the ram so it would run and is only compatible with that single game
So technically you can but not every game unless you have some special disc like this or a patched game or something
