I got the solution FINALLY (to my own question)
After you get to somewhere around 75% in installing ubuntu gutsy base system you get an error saying unable to install base system. Don't worry about, just hit continue and go back to installing the base system again. It will say something like proceed to unclean target. Say yes and the same thing will happen around 75% again. Don't flip, because this time they give you a choice of which kernel to use. I picked the last one and from there its pretty easy. Hope this helps some new guy out there like me. And by the way syg00, I have tried yellow dog 5.0.1 on my ps3, and it isn't nearly as beginner friendly as ubuntu.
