Another good link to read about with "network link between your PS3 & PC"
http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-linux-news/connect-ps3-pc-via-usb-49259.html

----------------Quote from above link.------

"I think you are asking about direct link via USB such as the Tornado. The tornado only works with Windows systems. (http://www.thetornado.com)

I would suggest setting up a shared network drive between your PS3 and your PC.

I followed the instructions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=288534

and can access a shared drive on my Vista computer from my PS3 linux. "


Good luck.

Thank you very much.  

My drive was initially pre-formatted in NTFS format which was a showstopper
