The 2.6 kernels should have working r/w support for both HFS and HFS+
(with some minor exceptions like journalling mode on HFS+ or HFS-X).
Have you tried it recently? I know it was broken back in the old days,
but Roman has done a good job of updating them for 2.6. Setting
creator codes and such is probably easier with the user space tools,
but just creating files and writing to them should work better using
the kernel support.
