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.
