to answer my own question, for the whole package (This kit will include a Linux distribution on DVD that runs on the PS2 hardware, additional software, documentation, a 40GB hard drive, an Ethernet adapter, a USB mouse, a USB keyboard, and a computer monitor cable) it will cost $200, not bad i say, and it came out May 22, 2002, for anyone who wants anymore info on it theres a community set up for it at HERE [Thumb]

Only problem is that I see that you can't use the HD with the linux games. I might just skip on this and go for the network adapter and Madden 2003
