I would recommend you to update to 3.55 KMEAW CFW, since you can't use PSN anyway in 3.41 OFW. In regards to the difference between BDEMU and BDEMU2, the latter allows you to play games that use big files (there is a problem with external HDDs since they must use FAT32 filesystem, which does not support files larger than 4GB in size). The way it manages to do it is by splitting those big files into smaller parts. This does not work perfectly for every game. If you update to 3.55 KMEAW, do A LOT of reading first. (It's easy, but you have to do it in the right order and be sure to verify you have the right PUPs, just in case, since you don't want to brick your PS3).To use BDEMU2 you have to use a new manager(I recommend multiMAN 2.03.00 or Rogero Manager 8.4)
Thanks for the reply. I've updated to multiman 2.03 and installed bdemu2. I had been using OpenSplit before putting games in the external which has worked for me so far.
I guess I'm hesitant to update to 3.55 KMEAW because the setup I have now works for everything I want to play from backup. I guess I'm sticking with the if it aint broke don't fix it adage until I see a compelling reason to switch to 3.55.
To begin with I agree with most of what urielsd said above, except that I see no reason to mention any other backup manager than multiMAN, when replying to a post inside a subforum dedicated to multiMAN. And another reason for not mentioning the others is of course that I consider multiMAN to be the best...
Indeed! At that time most of us were still using OFW and dongles, which is no longer the case (though some still do).

All of that being said, will I benefit from using bdemu with this setup?
BDEMU should allow you to use modern versions of multiMAN with exactly the same functionality, even the same payload, as if you were using a setup based on a CFW such as I use.
Another benefit is that you should be able to select which payload to use in multiMAN, without having to reprogram any dongle.
However, I am not fully certain how/if the BDEMU features are used if a dongle has already activated a payload.
Perhaps multiMAN will then be restricted to use the payload already active...
The "BDEMU2.rar" file in the multiMAN thread contains two different PKG files. One for 3.41-type firmwares and one for 3.55-type firmwares.
Is there a specific version I need to use for ofw 3.41, or will the regular link in the multiman thread work?
"BDEMU" only contained a single non-hermes payload.
What is the difference between bdemu and bdemu2?
"BDEMU2" contains both that one (improved I think), plus a hermes-compatible payload.
The latter is the one that corresponds most closely to what you use today, and that payload is also the one I have configured multiMAN to use.
You might want to consider upgrading to a custom firmware, just like urielsd also said, and then the benefit (and need) of using BDEMU2 is obvious.
And just like him I strongly recommend choosing the 'kmeaw CFW 3.55", which is of course what I also use myself.
Edit: Ooops! Yet another post 'collision'.
Apparently you were already making a new post while I was writing this reply.
So some of my info came a bit late...

You are welcome, m8.
