Problem mounting hfs disk

I tried to use a Mac G4 HDD on my i686 linux box ( Mandrakelinux 10.1 )
That's what I get
[root@localhost youssef]# hmount /dev/hdd
/dev/hdd: contains 1 HFS partition
Volume name is "G4"
Volume was created on Thu Dec 31 23:36:35 1903
Volume was last modified on Sun Feb 20 21:39:01 2005
Volume has 0 bytes free

[root@localhost youssef]# hls
hls: Current HFS directory "G4::" no longer exists
hls: ":": read unallocated b*-tree node (Input/output error)

[root@localhost youssef]# hvol
Current volume is mounted from partition 1 of:
hvol: Current HFS directory "G4::" no longer exists

Volume name is "G4"
Volume was created on Thu Dec 31 23:36:35 1903
Volume was last modified on Sun Feb 20 21:39:01 2005
Volume has 0 bytes free

[root@localhost youssef]# cd
[root@localhost ~]# cat .hcwd
G4      -2082844385     /dev/hdd        1       :

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
