Mounting hfs partition on ubuntu ppc live cd
I'm trying to recover some priceless data for a friend who's powerbook g4 maliciously crashed. I'm trying to use a ubuntu ppc live cd to go in there mount the partition, and transfer the files via ftp over the network. The live cd boots without any problems, but I get the error that /dev/hda is in use, or already mounted when I try to mount it (which neither are true). Note that the reason for the crash could have been a dying hard drive, but I'll try anything to recover the data. I used several varients of: mount -t hfsplus /dev/hda /mnt/macosx to try to mount the drive. Also note that /dev/hda is the only hard disk device in /dev. Thanks for any help you can provide.
