right ok take 2 at the guide:
ive been doing some more digging about and found that you actually dont need psl1ght and ps3toolchain as asbestOS has its own tool chain so this is a rework of my original post
1, download and compile the toolchain from here git.marcansoft.com Git - asbestos.git/blob - toolchain/buildit.sh
2, NFS from here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo or if you choose load from usb device
3,then compile asbestOS from here git.marcansoft.com Git or use hermes from here http://psx-scene.com/forums/f119/gui...payload-69498/ (Hermes AsbestOS Payload)
right now if you compile asbestOS from marcansoft it automatically points to the boot server from your dhcp server config. then from the dhcp config that points to the tftp server and a file which is the kboot.config(which was used originally for otheros) which then points to the kernel and initrd(tftp loaded btw so put in tftp folder) and kernel args. the kernel args point to specific nfs parameters(the nfs folders set up in step 2) then comes the good stuff....you need your powerpc distro of your choice(ubuntu,gentoo,etc) and now you need to edit the kernel wiv a patch from here http://git.marcansoft.com/?p=ps3-lin...summary....for any worries abestOS can run on 64kb so it can be compiled for any device wiv tha space...im not sure on the mcu needed as it stands but i will find out and get the spec's here asap....i hope this helps you guys but i'll keep to my word and as soon as ive got my device set this up user friendly for all who wanna use it =D
this is more of a breakdown in simple terms on how it works rather than a guide to set it up but ive gave as many pointers so you have some reading to start getting familiar wiv how its done
Right ok been looking into how to install ubuntu to NFS and there is a http://wiki.debian.org/Debootstrap which if you read about can set the filesystem for you on space on a partition should make setting up the root filesystem easier on your machine...i will find out whats needed from the powerpc version of ubuntu to make it boot properly....anyone feel free to jump in n contribute
Linux on the PS3 is not to the point where most people would want too use it. Give it some time, I'm sure it will get there.

I'll update this as I figure out how to do the steps
Download and compile the asbestos toolchain from marcansoft...
well here's what I did -----
download this PSL1GHT VM « Codename: Rebug open the file with this programDownloads - VirtualBox launch it...(set operating system as linux and second option as ubuntu).
Then boot the virtual machine...:dance:
Click the terminal icon next to firefox in the top left.
type into the terminal
just finished myself building the toolchain you should get this message in the terminal..
git clone git://git.marcansoft.com/asbestos.git
git clone git://git.jdl.com/software/dtc.git
git clone git://git.marcansoft.com/ps3-linux.git
cd toolchain && ./buildit.sh ppu
then...I think I'm doing this right :shhh:
PowerPC toolchain built and installed
type into a new terminal window
I'm getting dtc missing errors but I did make already on the dtc folder...
finding a fix - probably move the dtc manually into dev/ps3/bin/dtc will fix this - and it does :)
next type into a new terminal window
hmm I get address already in use anyways I'll fix in a minute...
is asbestos a whole new os? i already have yellow dog in my hidden partition i can't access, does someone think with time a cfw/mfw will re-enable it for those who still have it hidden away?
is there any CLEAR solution for having linux on my 120gb ps3 slim 3.55? :)
something that you can maybe try is to get otheros.self and get it signed and run it from filemanager , maybe maybe it will start the linux as you have it installed allready. no point in running it if you have no linux partition as the option to format it that way is missing in 3.55 and 3.41
