    okay so i have some questions for putting ubuntu on my ps3, I found a tut but i still have some questions.

    Will i have to format my whole ps3 hdd? and if i dont will everything else like accounts and gamesaves be safe? Also is there a way to dual boot both the ps3 OS and ubuntu and how would i do that?

    So if someone could point me to a good tut maybe and answer my question that'd be great!

    You do a quick format and partition 10gb for ubuntu. So you will be dual booting.
    I forget if it deletes everything, but I think it does. So back everything up.

    I didn't back anything up, but honestly, it was a waste. The PS3 has such little RAM that it takes about 45 seconds to launch firefox.
