Explain your question.
I'm running Mac OS 9 and YDL and can view one of my partitions because it is
HFS, not HFS+ (you'll need hfsutils). I also can view my linux filesystem
under MacOS by using a MountX, an extension that shows me the the Linux
partution as a Mac drive. I can open and copy files from it, but can't write
to it. (I can't wait for that! :) )

Does this answer your question or am i just blowing smoke?
