Question Cannot use my keyboard to get past the "kboot" prompt with install

Hopefully someone can help me.
I have a PS3 80G that I was advised to install fedora core 5 to use my system as a computer. I followed the instructions from a website and installed the kboot onto my scan disk and burned fedora to a DVD as directed. I plugged my scan disk into the PS3 and the penguin page came up but stopped at the kboot prompt. My wireless keyboard will not allow me to type, I cannot get out of this screen it's frozen. I even tried to start the PS3 without the scan disk & burned DVD but I still only get the penguin page that goes to the kboot prompt.

How can I remove this so I can at least use my PS3 to watch movies or play games again?? I'm stuck at this point..

Any advise is greatly appreciated!!!!

Notice that you can always boot the Game-OS by entering the command 'boot-game-os' at the kboot prompt, or by holding down the power-button during power-on (from Fedora you should use the ps3-boot-game-os command).
