thanks for that link but it didn't really give a step by step on how to get our ps3 and mac to communicate with each other...
i have the ps3 turned on and opened ps3 media server but media server is not finding my ps3 and without someone telling exactly what to do, i don't even know where to start

Really it should just be as easy as opening PS3 Media Server and starting up your PS3. They're both on the same network, right?
