    the otheros.bld file has to be in the folder <root>/PS3/OTHEROS (in capital letters) on the flash drive, hdd or cd.
    any other folder won't work.

    hope that helps...

    A quick search on google (otheros.bld) yield a lot of results. you can start by the gentoo (I'm a gentoo fan) website there's an installation guide which might help you find what you're looking for, or Fedora Core too can help.

    And if you're a masochist you can always try building your own otheros.bld image, again your friend google can and will help.

    But you can try this link an intresting (eye candy) alternative to kboot (which is the boot loader - a stand alone linux system for that matter -) which based on Kboot but is much eye pleasing.

    Here is a link to the official site with mirrors for ydl: http://us.fixstars.com/support/downloads/

    i don't know if ydl 5.0 has the otheros on dvd.

    download the newer version 6.0. this one has all the needed files.
