Description of problem:

I tried to install F9 beta on a PS3.

The graphical installation does not work for me. X starts, the displays get grey
and a mouse appears. Nothing more happens, after two hours of waiting I killed it.

Text mode does work better, but Anaconda crashes while copying packages. Sadly,
the "save to" feature to save a bug report does not work either. I connected an
usb-floppy-disk (world`s first PS3 with a floppy disk :-)) and an usb
memory-stick. The whole system freezes while writing to the usb-devices.

Has anyone succesfully installed F9 PPC ? Just bad luck on my machine ? Is PS3 a
target machine for F9-PPC oder are just real PPC machines targeted ?

You're hitting two different things, but both should be fixed for the PR.
