HOWEVER, when I launch the Ubuntu installation, I can not select ps3dd as my hard drive as choice and am only limited to sda, or ps3da or some other ones, but not the one I want. Anybody have an idea what I may be doing wrong?
What kind of Ubuntu installation do you start? By a normal ppc install cd, by the gitbrew net install or a special cd with graf his kernel?
Without an install with graf his kernel the install won't see the ps3dd. That petitboot does see it doesn't say anything, as soon as the installation starts the distro kernel takes over.
And did you put a filesystem on the created partitions?
Otherwise try Red Ribbon RC4, everything goes automatically with this distro and has graf his kernel integrated. No mounting of the RSX memory to swap etc needed, also automatically done
