Hmmm, an exciting project but nothing I've ever played with. So let me get 
this straight, the PS2 has its own network card, presumably USB, and it's 
connected to the PC's network card via a hub/switch/crossover-cable? You 
should have no problem accessing files on the PC's HDD and transferring data 
files between the two machines. I recommend using Samba: Ubuntu should have 
Samba front ends that make it easy to set up shares (my Kubuntu machines do) 
and all that's needed on the PS2 is smbmount or smbclient or a similar 

I am also assuming you're talking about a PlayStation2 and not an IBM PS/2 :) 
(which I tried to set up with Linux but failed miserably -- 2mb i386!)
