HD error when installing YDL on my ps3

I'm getting this error when I'm trying to install Yellow Dog Linux (version 5.0.2) on my ps3 and I'd like some input so that I don't wipe the ps3's hd empty

You have to wipe your drive to partition it so you can install Linux, get out of the install, find an external hard drive and run the backup utility.

You'll still have to re-download your demos, patches and various add-ons from the PSN Store (for free though) but it will keep your saves, music, accounts, videos, etc...

If you don't want to do that, don't install Linux.
