as far as i know (i may be wrong) but YDL will not display at that low of a resolution.
480i = 640x480 (roughly) when ideally you need at least a minimum of 600x800 to run any OS....
sorry 480i is 720x480 (according to some places i looked) either way i dont think you will have much success getting a display from YDL on it. you MIGHT be able to get that resolution via fedora core, but having not tried it i cant really comment...

I can confirm what pgi said about ydl about ydl for sure. Your best bet is a product that turns component output into vga input fo your pc, thats if you have a monitor that will support higher than 480. You will also have to buy sony's component out from the ps3. Shop around, you should be able toget both for a total of 73$ (US)
the user interface is already installed all you gotta do is turn it on. follow the instructions:
Switching to Graphical Mode after Text based Install
1. At the "localhost login" prompt, enter "root". Press [ENTER]
2. At the root password (this was set during installation) and press [ENTER]
3. Via the command line interface which you have just entered, download the Xautoconfig program:
wget http://www.terrasoftsolutions.com/support/solutions/ydl_5.0/Xautoconfig-0.23-2.ydl.2.ppc.rpm [ENTER]
4. Install this RPM:
rpm -ivh Xautoconfig-0.23-2.ydl.2.ppc.rpm [ENTER]
5. Type Xautoconfig and press [ENTER]. It will create the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and set it up with the parameters necessary to run a graphical system.
6. Edit the file /etc/inittab. Look for the line that reads:
... and change it to:
7. Edit the file /etc/kboot.conf and change the line that reads:
... to ...
8. Reboot your system:
Your system will now start by default into a low resolutions graphical mode.
