1. boot into FC5 on ps3
2. copy mp3 files from file server to fedora
3. copy mp3 files from fedora partition on ps3 to ps3 partition on ps3
I am not sure if I want to put FC5 on now or wait to get ahold of YDL somehow
Because of the way the PS3 is segmenting its hardware, access to the PS3 is not possible. Linux actually sees the secondary physical partition on which it resides as /dev/sda1. I assume this is done to keep the protected content, well, protected.
However, access to such data can be done through the use of a common medium. Ie. Flash drive, SD card, CF card, MemoryStick or External Harddisk (FAT formatted). Once inserted or connected the PS3 and the Linux segment can both access it.
The downfall with YDL is that they are currently charging for their 5.0 version which include the PS3 support. I would much rather make Fedora an integrated part of the PS3 anyway...not to say the YDL isn't a great product but I have come to love Fedora...
