I want to install Ubuntu Linux on a PS2 (model SCPH-50004). I have searched a lot on Google and other search engines, but only found this video on YouTube, and it's not quite what I wanted. I am quite new to Linux so I need help with this. Is it possible to install Ubuntu on a PS2? How?

This question came from our site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems..
The processor of the PS2, called the "Emotion Engine", is a processor from the MIPS family. Since Ubuntu Linux only supports i386, AMD64, and ARM platforms, you cannot install it on the PS2. You need to look for a distribution that supports the MIPS platform.
