Also I know that you must partion and format the HDD before installing otherOS (I'm on fw 1.54, I know 1.6 allows you to install on same partion). Everyone says to backup your game save data to a USB drive, but what about things I've downloaded from the playstation store? Is there anyway to save those, or am I going to have to re-download them?
I'd really like to know the same thing. I guess you could always go back and install Fedora over YDL, but I'd rather do it right the first time. The biggest thing I'm looking for Linux for is the ability to dump Blu-ray discs.
