    Hold the PS-button on the controller down, and go to "Reset controller number" (Just look for something like that, I can't remember exactly what it says TBH) and from there you can set your controller as #1, #2 etc.

    Remember, if you have a guitar hero wireless usb receiver plugged in, it will always take the first controller spot - you can just take it out when not using it, or do as described above to regain your #1 controller

    I'm not really educated on the alternative (or, OtherOS) operating sys you can install, other than some Linux versions will work. You might wanna read up on it before making mistakes.. would be sad to brick such a fine machinery

    good luck mate

    The current firmware doesn't allow a bigger partition throught the usual ps3 formating system, the only format available is a 10gb partition. However if you can hook your hdd on a pc you could try use partition magic to resize the partitions. Some people suggest that it is possible to do so with yellowdog linux, but im not familiar with the process.

    you can't allot more than ten gb's, as for the syncing check if you have a guitar hero dongle pluged in they really screwed up that design.
