It worked fine when I tried to use it, but remember that it is usually
case-insensitive, which means, that some Unix programs may have problems
with it.

BTW, I would recommend that you disable the journalling of the FS, if you
want the changes in Linux to be recognized without problems in MacOS X.

I'd like to try the new driver for MacOS X to read ext2 filesystems, but I
got scared when I saw some reports of data corruption about six months ago.
I now see that the project http://sf.net/projects/ext2fsx has released a
non-beta version which means that it may have correct behaviour now.
