Can I play PS1/PS2 games on my PS3?

Before I start unpacking old games I thought I'd ask here. I have the new Slim PS3, the one with a disc tray that slides open manually.

you cant play ps2 games on your ps3 unless you buy the collections/HD ports that are out or get some from the ps2 classics released on the ps store.

you can play physical ps1 games though, so go crazy with those :D
