How to mount hfs drive?

Hi. I'm pretty new to Linux so I need a bit (a lot!) of help mounting a hfs drive to my Linux computer.

The drive is WD branded and has 'My Passport' printed on it. It contains some media files that I wish to save to my Linux computer (running on Linux Mint 11 Katya). However, the computer doesn't register it when I plug it into the computer.

The drive works on my Mac running Mac OSX Lion and I can view all of the files there, but not when I plug it into my Linux.

I believe I need to mount it, but I have no idea how to. Please help!!!

Do you have the hfsutils or hfsplus depending on which type of hfs it is?
