This tutorial describes how to install PS2 Linux from the Live DVD v3 to the internal hard disc of the fat PS2. The hard disc was setup with HDLoader. You can use HDLoader and PS2 Linux in parallel.
Linux 2.4 can only access 137 GByte. If you have a larger hard disc, you need to make the partitions smaller (total sum smaller 137 GByte).

If you can't read it, here are the commands:

How long does it take copy the files from /oldroot/newroot to /mnt/hda2? I'm installing from a flash drive and I've been sitting here for over an hour. Can anyone tell me how long this will take?

Hi, I did a talk on installing linux on a ps2 with hdd and network adapter. I added some more information based on your tutorial and the info on psx scene forum. http://psx-scene.com/forums/f167/installation-old-ps2-network-adapter-hdd-german-english-will-come-soon-121925/

Yes, if you have the fat PS2. On slim it is unstable or you need to use it read only. There is more information in the forum at the psx scene website.

Sorry, I didn't get automatically informed when there is a new comment. Since kernelloader 2.5 there is support for editing text with the game pad and no keyboard is needed. This version also added a menu entry "Set to hda2" which simplifies the configuration. The newest version 2.7 fixes several problems and should be used.
