if you were to change you thread subject to something like
"help on installing gentoo on PS3"
you might get people who know about that sort of thing to read this

While the step by step will help someone recreate your problem, you must post _MUCH_ more about the error. Such as, what it says. (I hope I didn't just miss it, but I read the post twice)

Ok, maybe I can help here since I just went through this.

You don't need to get the otheros.bld from sony, it's already on the install cd. You also want to back up your game data if you want to keep it. It will be erased.

So you need to go to system settings in the ps3 menu, and there is an option to partition the drive, you select that and there is an option to allot 10 GB for another os. Select that option, then after the ps3 reboots and reformats the hard drive, put the cd in, go back to system settings, and select "install other os". The ps3 should find the file on the cd and you can install that.

Now you are ready to boot the cd. In the ps3 system settings menu there is another option for default system. Select that and then select other os and click yes to switch to it now. That should boot the install cd, leaving you at the kboot: prompt.

You are supposed to be able to hit the tab key on the keyboard to cycle through boot options, but it didn't work for me for some reason. I just typed "gentoo720p" and that got me a decent resolution to work with. Now when the system boots you can start the (almost) usual install procedure.
