Ubuntu Installer for the Playstation 3 System.
* This not in anyway endorsed by Sony and all other Sony companies/entities that are in existance.
* All software written here was written by hand and does not use any Sony Proprietary Code.

Disclaimer:
* I am in no way responsible for anything that happens to your Playstation 3 while using this installer.
* There should be no reason for this software to brick your Playstation 3 system, but in the event it
* does, I am not responsible for it.  Use at your own risk!

* This installer was also meant to be used with Gitbrew OtherOS CFW's. Rebug may work but untested.
These are the first attempts at an official Ubuntu installer for the Playstation 3.

Reasons for this installer:
- People make mistakes.  Simple as that. To err is human.
- This installer is to automate and hopefully cut down on chatter in the IRC rooms.
- Make installing Ubuntu easier on the PS3.
