Unix on a PS2 (or another console)

I don't believe this. You can now use gcc on a PS2 (or a Dreamcast, for that matter). That's right, you can use NetBSD/Linux/Unix on a PlayStation 2. I have learned of a NetBSD port, and I am guessing there is probably a Linux one. Finally, a good use for a video game console. For me, anyways, not being very much into gaming. I know there is are directions for installing on a Sega Dreamcast under the NetBSD/dreamcast port of it. I think there are also directions for a PS2 on that site. Hmmm.......maybe the PSP will be next?
After all, there is already iPodLinux. Cool. Maybe I will get into gaming in the process...........
