You'd need a devlopment kit from Sony. For that you'd need to contact Sony, I can't speak for them but AFAIK they only deal with profetional developers. I've heard that they a have allowed some game development college to have some/teach on the PS2.

In anycase writing hello world is not much diffrent on the PS2 than it would be on a PC. Where it gets diffrent is managing your resorces and low level programing for the hardware itself.

You can easily do that with the linux ps2 kit ie if you got a hold of one when available like myself.
To actually distribute a custom ps2 CD though you need a pro kit since the linux ps2 kit doesn't allow you to do that.
One effect of the EULA terms is that you cannot produce CDs or DVDs that can be used on the PlayStation platforms. This limits the distribution of software for Linux (for PlayStation 2) to on-line network distribution.

Writting a C++ project is one thing. The source code isn't going to do anything for you though if you can't compile it. Visual Studio doesn't ship with a PS2 compiler. Profectionally I use the PS2 development tools from SN Systems. For homebew stuff you may be able to find something on www.ps2dev.org
