Linux for PS2

Linky

Ok I was diggin on the net and found this...I dont' think it would really be worth it to buy...but maybe kinda fun to mess with..

Summary.....Product: Linux Kit (for PlayStation®2)
System: PlayStation 2
Model Number: SCPH-97047
Manufacturer: SCEI



Description: Linux enthusiasts and programmers can now use the same system they play their favorite PlayStation 2 formatted games on to run thousands of Linux applications! Combining the incredible technology of the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment with the endlessly versatile Linux operating system, Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) allows you to use the PlayStation 2 system as a fully functional desktop computer. Download a wealth of Linux programs--HTML editors, multimedia players, programming environments, office solutions, and more--and open a new world with the power of the next generation in computer entertainment.

The Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) includes:

• Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) release 1.0 software

• Monitor Cable Adaptor (for PlayStation 2) (with Audio Connectors)

• Internal Hard Disk Drive (40 GB) (for PlayStation 2)

• Network Adaptor (Ethernet) (for PlayStation 2) [10/100 Base-T]

• USB Keyboard (for PlayStation 2) & USB Mouse (for PlayStation 2)

Before using Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2)

Before installing or using Linux (for PlayStation 2), note the following:

Binary code that is developed for other Linux systems cannot be used with Linux PS2.

The supplied software is compatible only with the Internal Hard Disk Drive (40GB) (for PlayStation 2). Note that it cannot be used with other hard disk drives.

An Internal Hard Disk Drive (40GB) (for PlayStation 2) and a Memory Card (8MB) (for PlayStation 2) for exclusive Linux PS2 use are required to use this product. These items will be formatted for Linux use and will not be able to be used for other purposes.

The Internal Hard Disk Drive (40GB) (for PlayStation 2) and the Memory Card (8MB) (for PlayStation 2) will be formatted when Linux PS2 is installed. Because all stored data will be deleted during formatting, it is recommended that you back up data to another Memory Card (8MB) (for PlayStation 2) or to another computer, if possible. It is also recommended that you back up data periodically after installation.

Linux PS2 requires a monitor compatible with Sync on Green.

It is recommended that you have a computer that has Internet access because information about Linux PS2 is available on our website.

For more information about the Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) please visit the official PlayStation 2 Linux Community FAQ.

NOTE: Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) is a tool for Linux enthusiasts and programmers only. It will NOT enhance your PlayStation 2 games. The hard disk drive formatted for Linux cannot be used with HDD-compatible PlayStation 2 games. Basic understanding of the Linux operating system is strongly recommended for installation and use.

REQUIRES A PLAYSTATION 2 SYSTEM, VGA MONITOR [WITH SYNC-ON-GREEN CAPABILITY] AND MEMORY CARD (8MB) (FOR PLAYSTATI0N 2) [DEDICATED TO LINUX KIT USE], ALL SOLD SEPARATELY.

Well... It's nice...

But if you wanna run Linux on your game console, than go for this: XBOX-Linux
Got couple of these bad boys running under my desk... Excellent (and cheap) for webserver, mailserver, firewall...

Just to sum it up.. it's a kit (which appears is official) that allows you to run Linux on your PS2. It comes with:

• Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) release 1.0 software

• Monitor Cable Adaptor (for PlayStation 2) (with Audio Connectors)

• Internal Hard Disk Drive (40 GB) (for PlayStation 2)

• Network Adaptor (Ethernet) (for PlayStation 2) [10/100 Base-T]

• USB Keyboard (for PlayStation 2) & USB Mouse (for PlayStation 2)

Still think XBOX-Linux is cooler

The link is a "blind link" because he didn't post a summary of what the link's about. The title pretty much says in this case.. but a bit more of a summary is appreciated.

Ah, I see. I got the summary from the subject as well so I thought the link was overlooked.
