Sony has removed the option to install Linux from the firmware of the PS3, so if you have a somewhat new firmware on it you will not be able to do that.
There may be some cracks to achieve what you want (I don't own a PS3, so I don't know), but the LQ rules are not permitting to post something like that here, if I understand it correctly.
