    No, but I thinking of trying it. If I get arround to anytime soon I'll let you know how it is. This might be a question for the playstation forums, I'm sure some of the guys there have done it.

    I installed Gentoo on mine a year or so ago along with KDE as the GUI. It works pretty well and I have managed to get emulators working with no sound and mounted some network drives. It is functional but I rarely ever boot into it.

    So it's double boot? No risk of losing your PS3 OS?
