Do you have any advice for people trying to make cross-platform SDL
applications so they will run properly on the PS2?

For example, it seems that one cannot assume the presence of a keyboard.
Are the different buttons on the PS controller sent via the SDL_Joystick*()
functions or as key presses?

Does it have a harddisk or boot over the network? If no harddisk is
present, game state would have to be saved on memory cards. Is this
possible under Linux/PS2?
