Hello, I have successfully installed Debian Squeeze on my ps3 using the build from feb 12 using a microsdhc card. The only problem I encountered was that it could not find the correct kernel to install therefore a kernel had to be manually installed after the installation completed. The message was something to the effect of no installable kernels were found in the defined sources. If there are enough interested people who use Debian on the ps3, then maybe we can have this fixed. Thank you to everyone who has helped progress Debian on the ps3 to where it is today.
