Mine arrives on Wednesday unless I am mistaken. Has anyone installed Fedora Core and the boot-game-os app and had it work? I know it does under YDL. I have both distro's in iso form. My wife forced me to buy Tiger Woods golf so she insists that gaming not be disabled. ;-). This is definitely not for me (former low handicapper gone to seed). ;-)

There appear to be some HDMI to DVI cables available.  I've ordered
one, but it hasn't come yet.

Bear in mind the resulting DVI will still be encrypted/protected by
HDCP, so if your monitor doesn't do HDCP the cable won't solve the
problem.  There is not likely to be any [legitimate] product that
simply removes the HDCP (and leaves the signal digital) since that
sort of defeats the entire purpose of HDCP.  The "Ophit DDA" converter
supposedly takes DVI+HDCP as input and produces unprotected analog VGA
as output, but don't know if anyone has ever tried it with a PS3.
