Mmm the installation seems to use FDisk, could that maybe pickup a USB Hard Drive? I'm betting it would be very slow if my PS2Slim is indeed USB 1.1.
I do remember reading that there is a device you can solder to the pads on your PS2Slim model to hook up a hard drive (mainly for HDLoader), could I use that but just for Linux?
Seems I would have to get another MU to, since it would erase my game saves.
Edit, this is what I'm on about, http://www.hdcombo.com/
(hopes it works on V14's, cause it only says V12-V13)., dam I just read part of a review and the points were removed on V14's, which kinda sucks.
Edit again, I guess my ONLY hope is a network boot. I don't have much experience in Linux Network Booting (though I'm quite comforabtle with linux, been using it a good few years).
No, it does not. The slim SCPH-70000 model PlayStation 2 contains no expansion bay or expansion port; consequently there will be no kit released that will work with this model, and the existing HDD cannot be fitted. In theory, it should be possible to configure a Linux kit to network boot on the SCPH-70000 model, if the kit is configured before use on the SCPH-70000. The diskless client project hosted on our website would provide a good resource for configuring this setup.
There was a statement released by Sony which confirms that the hard drive is not supported in the new slimmer PlayStation 2, shortly after the Press Releases and announcements were made. This is also covered in our discussion forums.
