Wait are all those yours? If they are, I'm scared.

Nope. They belong to NCSA.

Looks great but must be expensive unless you modify the units yourself.

The Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) includes:


Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) release 1.0 software


Monitor Cable Adaptor (for PlayStation 2) (with Audio Connectors)


Internal Hard Disk Drive (40 GB) (for PlayStation 2)


Network Adaptor (Ethernet) (for PlayStation 2) [10/100 Base-T]


USB Keyboard (for PlayStation 2) & USB Mouse (for PlayStation 2)

Before using Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2)

Before installing or using Linux (for PlayStation 2), note the following:

Binary code that is developed for other Linux systems cannot be used with Linux PS2.

The supplied software is compatible only with the Internal Hard Disk Drive (40GB) (for PlayStation 2). Note that it cannot be used with other hard disk drives.

An Internal Hard Disk Drive (40GB) (for PlayStation 2) and a Memory Card (8MB) (for PlayStation 2) for exclusive Linux PS2 use are required to use this product. These items will be formatted for Linux use and will not be able to be used for other purposes.

The Internal Hard Disk Drive (40GB) (for PlayStation 2) and the Memory Card (8MB) (for PlayStation 2) will be formatted when Linux PS2 is installed. Because all stored data will be deleted during formatting, it is recommended that you back up data to another Memory Card (8MB) (for PlayStation 2) or to another computer, if possible. It is also recommended that you back up data periodically after installation.

Linux PS2 requires a monitor compatible with Sync on Green.

It is recommended that you have a computer that has Internet access because information about Linux PS2 is available on our website.

For more information about the Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) please visit the official PlayStation 2 Linux Community FAQ.

NOTE: Linux Kit (for PlayStation 2) is a tool for Linux enthusiasts and programmers only. It will NOT enhance your PlayStation 2 games. The hard disk drive formatted for Linux cannot be used with HDD-compatible PlayStation 2 games. Basic understanding of the Linux operating system is strongly recommended for installation and use.

REQUIRES A PLAYSTATION 2 SYSTEM, VGA MONITOR [WITH SYNC-ON-GREEN CAPABILITY] AND MEMORY CARD (8MB) (FOR PLAYSTATI0N 2) [DEDICATED TO LINUX KIT USE], ALL SOLD SEPARATELY.
