my "solution" to the filesystem access is quite unpleasant but i've not found
anything better :
I have an HFS partition (not HFS+) and i have to boot to linux to copy the files
i need to share with the mac on this partition. It doesnot work at 100% but it's
better than not sharing the files at all.

When you're used to do this, you dont even notice the pissing part of this silly
method ;))
