I just read on WiKi you can also fold on PS3??? I have one
How do I setup that
and does the PS3 PPD counts with my PC's PPD somehow?

Folding@home can also take advantage of the computing power of PlayStation 3s, to achieve performance previously only possible on supercomputers. Unlike Microsoft's Xbox, the PS3 is well suited for Folding@home simulations. Its main Cell processor delivers a 20x speed increase over PCs for certain calculations, allowing the Pande Group to address problems previously considered impossible to tackle computationally. These additional computational capabilities also allow for greater insights into disease research. The PS3's uniform console environment makes support easier, as well as making Folding@home user friendly. The PS3 also has the ability to stream data quickly to its GPU, allowing for real-time atomic detail visualizations of the protein dynamics.
The PS3's processor is capable of several different types of molecular dynamics methods. It best performs implicit solvation calculations, like Folding@home's GPUs. However it can also run explicit solvation calculations like FAH's CPUs, although not as rapidly. This makes it more flexible than GPUs, but less so than CPUs. In this manner it takes a middle path between flexibility and speed. Unlike CPUs and GPUs, donors cannot play video games while running Folding@home calculations. Instead, the Pande Group has specifically designed PS3 Work Units to take approximately eight hours so that they can be completed overnight. These WUs have a deadline of two days.
The PS3 client was originally a standalone application, but since September 18, 2008 is now a channel of the application Life with PlayStation, developed in a collaborative effort between Sony and the Pande Group. Both Sony and the Pande Group have acknowledged the PS3 client is safe to use.
