Welcome to the PlayStation Community!

 

You can't, at least not unless you have a 4-USB B/C PS3, which you don't.

The software  that you downloaded doesn't enable your PS3 to play PS2 games.  It would take more than a few megabytes of downloaded software to do that.  The software that you downloaded just allows the small percentage of older PS3s that already have the ability to play PS2 games, to play the handful of PS3 games that used or required the PS2 hard disk drive (primarily Final Fantasy XI).  It is useless on any PS3 that was made after 2007.
