Now this should probably go over to the developer list (there is one,
right?), but I'll post it here since I'm sure others are interested.

I know that for a distro to boot on a PS3, something has to be modified.

instructions on how to do it, so any PPC Linux distro can be installed
and run on a PS3.  I think they give an example using Fedora Core 5.
Here's the developer site with the documentation:
