    Is it possible?

    If so, how do I go about this?

    yes it is, i did that a long time ago but not many games worked and the ones that did played slow because the ps2 usb ports are version 1.1
    also i think the program was called "usbadvance"

    3 way (with open ps2 loader):
    1. usb hdd -> very slow loading time and stuttering animation
    2. ide (hdcombo) or sata port mod (soldering required)-> equivalent to an internal hdd : blazing fast
    3. network hdd with smb server -> pretty much the same as the internal hdd except some stuttering on HQ cutscene
