Guide to Installing Linux on Your PS3!
Walkthrough of installing Linux on a PS3.
"Okay, so you are one of the lucky few who got their grubby little hands on a PS3¦good for you! You've played all the games, watched Talladega Nights on Blu Ray, and even viewed pictures of your latest trip to the zoo (to visit your mother in law) on your HD TV. Having done all of this, you are only left with one monstrous question…what the hell am I going to do until Heavenly Sword comes out? Well, if you are a tech geek like me, one of the most interesting things that you heard when they were announcing features for the PS3 was that it was going to be fully capable of running other operating systems, namely Linux. Well, with the release of Yellow Dog Linux 5.0, the Playstation 3 has taken its first steps on fulfilling this promise."

screen: Keep Your Processes Running Despite A Drop

This can be very annoying, but fortunately there is a small utility called screen which lets you reattach to a previous session so that you can finish your task. This short tutorial shows how to use screen for just this purpose.
