about your ps2, you can go to exploitstation.com and read up on doing a soft-mod. It needs to be a fat ps2. you will need a action replay disc to get the mod on your memory card. the usb version works good. other than that you need a ps1 disc to boot the mod. Any sports game works good. if you can find a friend with the mod, its a simple matter of transfering the exploit onto your memory card from theirs. You will have to manually open and close your disc tray, but there's tutorials for everything on the site. good luck..
