FAT is still your best bet when it comes to sharing a file system.  In
principle, Linux can write HFS and HFS+, but HFS has always been buggy
and HFS+ is still moving too fast to be trusted with important data
IMHO.  Anyway, you may not want to share a partition at all, but run
Mac OS X inside the virtual machine Mac-on-Linux and share files via
the network.

Which reminds me that the mol Debian packages are really old and buggy
right now.  My bad.

There's an ext2 driver for Mac OS X out there.  It crashed my machine
and ate the file system once, so I decided I would definitely not
abandon XFS for it.
