I am under the impression that journalling in HFS+ was implemented the same
way ext3 was implemented over ext2, because if I mount the HFS+ Journalled
filesystem on a Linux system, Linux shows two hidden files that I can

If I do that, MacOS X just shows the filesystem as a non-journalled HFS+
filesystem and, with Disk Tool (or was it Disk Util, I can't remember the
name of the thing) I can re-enable journalling and the files appear there

This seems to be similar to ext3's .journal file.

Hope this is informative, Rogério.
