Got a bit of a problem installing Gentoo on my PS3. (40GB, 2.10)

When I type in "fdisk /dev/ps3da" it tells me it couldn't open the hdd. Or something like that. I tried /sda & /hda but nothing worked. I'm using this guide: http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/cell/wiki/InstallGentooOnPS3
I tried looking for the right name by doing "ls /dev" but I couldn't find anything.

Also, when I'm in kboot I try to type "boot-game-os" but it tells me "command not found". Not that big of a problem since I can reset the console by holding the power button for a few seconds but shouldn't that command work?

Thanks

Did you allot part of the hard drive for use by Other OS in the Settings -> System Settings menu?

That'll probably be it, can't believe I forgot that.

Thanks
