Why would you have to pay $99? It should be free.

yellowdog !

You need to know that there isn't a version of flash that you can install so you wont be able to view any flash content e.g (youtube) on your browser.

Ok guys, the OP states that he does not have a computer, so he can't download these thing himself...

There are places online that sell linux CDs for a fee, but I don't know if any will carry YDL for PS3.

Do you have a friend who could donwnload it and burn it for you?

Well, I know for a fact that Ubuntu will install onto a PS3. http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/8.10/release/ if someone can download it for you. Go for the "Playstation 3 Alternate Install CD", not the server one. Also, http://psubuntu.com/ is a good resource for Ubuntu on PS3
