AIX filesystem on Fedora?


So I've got these disk drives from an AIX box that I need to get the data off of... What kind of filesystem does AIX use and how might I be able to get them to mount in Fedora?

Any help is definitely appreciated. Thanks!

The AIX file system is probably JFS. Linux has JFS support but I think that there is a more basic problem that blocks you from mounting the disk drives. I think that AIX is big endian and PCs are little endian:
