Although the PS3 itself is not region locked, PS2 games are and unfortunately the region lock will still be enforced. No idea what 'lennox' may be (Linux?), but there's no way you can play that game on your PS3 I'm afraid.

I assume you bought a PS2 game that works on your PS2 system but not on your PS3 system since a PS3 game will never work on a PS2.
Since not all PS3 systems can play PS2 games, you need to first check the model number of your PS3 system. If you look at the back of your PS3, there should be a serial number somewhere that starts with "CECH", followed by one more letter and a couple numbers (e.g. "CECHC02"). Unless the model number starts with "CECHA", "CECHB", "CECHC", or "CECHE", you won't be able to play PS2 games on your PS3.
If your PS3 can play PS2 games, then you need to make sure that the region of the PS2 game matches the region of your PS3. The region of the PS2 game can be found in the upper-right corner of the front of the box the game came in. The four regions are: "NTSC U/C", "NTSC J", "NTSC C", and "PAL".
Once you know the model number of the PS3 and the region of the PS2 game, you can tell if the PS2 game should work on the PS3. Use the following chart to determine if your game and system are compatible:
Last two digits of your PS3 model number: Playable PS2 game region 00: NTSC J 01: NTSC U/C 02: PAL 03: PAL 04: PAL 05: NTSC J 06: NTSC J 07: NTSC J 08: PAL 09: NTSC C 11: NTSC U/C 12: NTSC J
The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.
umm....u gotta explain more....r the ps2 games copied....what region ps2 games r u using...and what region is ur ps3.
other then that...i'm guessing ur ps3 wasn't new....and the dealer u baught it from wanted to get rid of it fast
Some games won't be supported since they are region specific. And if it's a PS2 game then it may not have the patch needed to play it. Here in the states about 200 PS1 and PS2 games are not recognized by the PS3. And if it's not an American region game, then we have to have a mod chip for it to work.
