Linux support for Extended HFP partitions


Is it possible to mount an Apple Extended HFS partition? I can mount a standard HFS partition, but the extended partition is giving me fits.

It may be possible that there is no Linux support for Extended HFS partitions. Does anyone know for sure?

FYI ... the box is a dual boot iMac with LinuxPPC (2.2.14 kernel) and MAC OS 9.

Thanks greatly

After looking a little bit on the web, all I see Linux supports is HPS, not EHPS, at least not specifically.

Looks like you may be in trouble, but some please correct me if I'm wrong.

Sorry .... typo on the last post

Sorry ... I meant HFS ... not HPS. I checked the web too and didn't find anything definitively one way or the other. Thanks for the help tho!
