Read Mac OS

What program can I use to be able to read and write if possible to a Mac OSX (Tiger) filesystem? I have an external hard drive formatted with Mac filesystem and I need to read and write to it using Fedora 10.

I believe you just use a standard mount command with the "-t hfsplus" option.

Before you can mount it, you need to make sure you have hfsutils and hfsplus installed. HFS Utils is for standard HFS volumes, HFS Plus is for HFS+ volumes, which most modern Mac OSes would be using.
