Paul Hargrove <> maintains the (excellent) HFS
filesystem for Linux. It lives at www-sccm.Stanford.EDU/~hargrove/HFS/
and is currently in version 0.7.8. It's only a module for now.

Anybody have any idea what kind of success to expect mounting an HFS
SyQuest cartridge? The 0.7.8 readme claims the ability to mount HFS Zip
disks. YMMV, but you won't waste too much time: 0.7.8 compiled right out
of the archive for me.

Alternatively, the DR2 CD-ROM can be had from Prime Time Freeware
( for cheap (Apple says ~$20).
