Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

In your original post you said that you were trying to mount /dev/sda1. In your third post you said that the data you want is in /dev/sda2. In your second post you said that /dev/sda is fat32 and /dev/sda1 is hfs+.
Actually /dev/sda is a device. It is not a partition.
You want to mount a partition, either /dev/sda1 or /dev/sda2. If partition /dev/sda1 is formated as fat32 then that would explain why you cannot mount it as a hfs or hfs+ file system.
If the partition /dev/sda2 is really the partition which is formatted hfs or hfs+ then I suggest that you start over with one of these this commands:
Sorry if i was unclear. What i was trying to say was that Slax 6.0.7 does not see the /dev/sda2. When i boot into Slax i only see /dev/sda and /dev/sda1. I don't see a /dev/sda2. When i boot into Knoppix i can see both the /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2.
Is there a reason that the Slax would not see the /dev/sda2 parition on the device?
Would there be a boot reason for the kernel not to see the /dev/sda2 partition on the drive?
Bump, I am still looking for a solution to this. Anyone have any ideas as to why Slax 6.0.7 (running kernel 184.108.40.206) doesn't give the data partition of a Macbook hard drive a device name. I am only getting /dev/sda and /dev/sda1 when Slax boots up. When i boot in Knoppix 5.1.1 (running i think 2.6.19) i get /dev/sda, /dev/sda1 (boot sector i think), and /dev/sda2 which is the data.
Any help would be great. I am missing a udev rule or something?
