Jerry rig a PS2 HD?

Well I was wondering if you could jerry rig(sp?) a regular PC HD to the PS2 because I have an old empty 20 GB HD in the shed. I just bought an online PS2 system and all I'm missing is the HD which was not included. Did anyone buy the HD and is it the same as a regular PC HD?

The interface is for a standard IDE HDD. However, I'd imagine the drive would need a special format and/or special data in order for it to run. I'd like to get ahold of one of the units just so I could do an image dump and analysys of it. Too bad I don't have a spare $99 and PS2 laying around.

Well if it's anything like the xbox you'll need to get ahold of a ps2 hard drive image. Theres a special formating. theres prolly lots of sites out there, i'll look around for a few and post them here if i find anything worth while.
..::EDIT::..
Check this site looks like they have info on using other hard drives with the ps2.

Yeah, they probably have some special bootloader or image file to make sure people have to buy the special hard drive.

You could try, but don't expect it to work.
