Default I want to put Linux on my PS3....

Someone walk me through that because I'm not terribly sure what is involved. I am looking to retire this crappy laptop. Furthermore I'd like to know some specifics of the interaction between Linux and the PS3.

1. Will I be able to switch between the XMB and the OS at will?

2. Will I be able to play stuff I've got on the harddrive easily?

3. Are there any internet browsers friendly to Linux?

Just curious because this is a feature I'm interested in using.

Yes. You just must reboot to switch from Linux to XMB

Yes and No. Linux wont see the stuff you download from PSN because you will be required to partition your HDD. But Linux will recognize external HDD and ect. so if you put content onto it, no problem.

YellowDog for example comes with Firefox as most Linux's do.

Yeah, sorry if this has been posted before.

YellowDog doesn't show up on the Linux site so finding it is something else I'm interested in.
