Wow, yeah... some UPnP implementations on routers do suck. I take that back... almost all of them do. Not sure what else to say about that one.
Do I have to worry about trojans if I don't install Linux OP? wouldn't the trojan most likely be written for a windows environment anyway(I don't know the answer)
A trojan is much like the Trojan Horse... you have to let it in yourself. So you would have to download the app yourself and run it. Any virus/trojan would also have to be written SPECIFICALLY for the PS3, or PowerPC Linux in order to actually do damage. Sony's OS is locked down tighter than a guy going for his first prostrate exam, and with Linux's popularity mostly being on x86, there isn't much out there that will pose a threat.
That may change, however, so just keep an eye out for reports every so often, and only download software from sources you are willing to trust when running Linux, and you should be fine.
Also do I need to set up static IP addresses for my other wireless devices (like 3 pcs) and psp so that they don't get assigned the PS3's IP address or will the router know not to give out that address to any other device?
Here is how I solve that problem: I configure the router so that I have two parts of my address space: one which the router is allowed to assign, one that it isn't. Any static IPs go in the second area. This way you can avoid clashes. My printer server, router, and file server are all static IP (x.x.x.1-.39 for example), and everything else is dynamic (x.x.x.40-.254).
