You will need a PS3 setup with YellowDog Linux, or other Linux, but YellowDog has support for the PS3, and need to download a version of BOINC designed especially for the PS3 available from the project (will be available on BOINC download page in the future)
The application makes use of 6 of the 8 cell processors on the PS3.
