I'm going to assume you are on an OFW higher than 3.55. If so then download this MinVerChk.rar

Extract the pup file and run it on your PS3 like a normal firmware update. It will error and tell you what the lowest firmware you can have on your PS3.

If it says 3.56 or lower then your PS3 can have CFW, however you will need to use extra hardware (an E3 Flasher) to patch your flash to be able to accept CFW. If it is any higher than 3.56 then your PS3 cannot have CFW.

Pretty much what dazza4783 mentioned... you'll need an E3 Flasher to downgrade and then jailbreak it to install CFW on.

You can try their resellers or places like Amazon or eBay to get one, or have someone who offers a downgrading service do it for you.
