My ps3 experience is limited, but I dont think you can directly save on an external drive. Saving and transfering to it through the crossbar should be a possibility, especially if you have Linux on it.

no no no...

Well they do sell 2.5 to 3.5 bay converters, should be about $10-15. The catch would be the length of the cable inside the PS3. But Im going to go out on a limb and say that as of now, no it is not possible.
