That may be the case, but as of right now, PS3 isn't specifically supported, and probably won't be officially supported until we have a reliable bootable disk. Once we do, I'd be happy to add the PS3 specific sections to the Gentoo/PowerPC handbook. As it stands, the install procedure is basically the same as any other unsupported architecture in Gentoo (make it boot, then use our stages), but with the benefit of supported keywords and stages. If there is Gentoo documentation that you think needs to be updated to reflect this, please let me know and I'll get it fixed. Thanks, -Joe
