If HFS support is not already in your kernel you have to do a kernel compile and include the HFS+ file system support module. On second thought, I am not absolutely sure that HFS+ exists. I used to use HFS support a few years ago but I don't know for sure that HFS+ support exists yet.

i know it exists because when i go to kernel control in the KDE control center, it says HFS+ under file systems, with a red X next to it. if i change the X to a green check, it says i need to run "make symlink dep" i run it and it says that "symlink" has no target
what does this mean?

I don't know what it means because my KDE control center does not have a kernel control section. I looked for HFS+ on my system with this command:
find /lib -iname "*hfs*"
and to my surprise I have both HFS and HFS+ support installed:

/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/kernel/fs/hfsplus
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/kernel/fs/hfsplus/hfsplus.o
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/unsupported/fs/hfs
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/unsupported/fs/hfs/hfs.o

So I suggest that you use the find command to check to see if you have HFS+ support installed.

It is possible that HFS+ support is installed but Linux does not realize that it needs to invoke HFS+ support to access the hard drive. So use the find command to check whether HFS+ is installed or not. If it is not installed then you need to do a kernel compile to install HFS+. If HFS+ is installed then you need to go through the loadable modules logic to find out why Linux isn't calling out HFS+ at the proper time.

How to mount HFS+ partitions

Right to mount HFS+ partitions:

1. Go to control centre, administration, Linux Kernel.
2. In the Linux kernel section make sure in filesystems HFS and HFS+ have a green tick. If already ticked skip 3.
3. Go to where your linux kernel resides, this is written at the top of the linux kernel configurator in control centre, open a terminal here and type:
make symlinks dep
If you don't issue this command in the running linux directory it will chuck out an error.
4. Open etc/fstab file in KWrite then add the line.

/dev/hda(followed by hda device number)
/mnt/hda(followed by hda device number)
hfsplus
rw,user,noauto
2 0

So it will look something like this:

/dev/hda11 /mnt/hda11 hfsplus rw,user,noauto 2 0

Just look at how the other devices are done in the fstab file and you will know how add this line quite easily.
4. Go to /mnt/ directory and create a new folder named hda(followed by the hda number)
5. Reboot and smile.
5. Reboot and
