I read some things about the HFSX (HFS+ with case sensitivity) and I am
wondering how I can mount it on Linux?  I get HFS_-fs: unable to find
HFS+ superblock when trying to mount and it fails when I try to mount
with $ mount -t hfs /dev/hda13 /mnt/x.  I would like to use and mount
the case sensitive HFS+ on my powerbook to use my hard drive space more
efficiently between the 2 oses.  Is this even possible even with the
2.6.8 kernel? 


PS.  I got HFSX from the table when I do mac-fdisk -l
