Installing and Running Linux on Sony PS2 Devices and Intel / Mac Computers

Linux can be installed in any INTEL based Mac Machine, here I have used a Mac Mini. It was successful (*please search for @installing Linux on Mac"), the same way and we can install on the Sony Play Station 3 video game console (try Mandrive,Fedora, Ubuntu, openSUSE, Yellow Dog, Gentoo. Linux kernel supports PlayStation 3, so no worries about patches or hacks are required to install and run a full-featured distro.

Use Xross Media Bar (XMB) menu of your Playstation,
XMB menu, select System , Format Drive to PS3 HDD.then do a classic a partition for the hard drive by selecting to Custom Partition and allocate atleast 10GB to the PS3 System. your Play station will restart after this.After restart login and insert your favouraite Linux CD/DVD installer. After this step go again from the XMB menu, go to "System" and then "Install Other OS". The PS3 will search for from the installer. Once found, install it. After the installation, you can now set the PS3 to boot Linux by default by navigating to System (Default System to Other OS) thats all..your PS3 is a PC
