So if I install YDL with original bootloader then install THIS bootloader over the top will YDL still work?

This is what I got. As soon as I get to the browser I hit enter on the cd Icon that contains the iso image pdaxrom-ng that I burned, but the ps3 freezes on this screen:

I think I'm doing something wrong, but if somebody has this bootloader working already, please give me a tip or let me know what I'm doing wrong.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
