I'm sorry, you are correct: the 300G is indeed an HFS+ drive formatted

So what is it? HFS or HFS+? Big difference for Linux cause different
are used (hfs and I think hfsplus).
Not sure if OS X still recognizes a HFS drive. Maybe the partition
the drive is no longer recognized. Wat do fdisk (in Linux and OS X)
How did you partition and format the drive initially?
using Disk Utils in OS X
so again, why would mounting a HFS+ drive on a ext3 machine (Ubuntu PPC
5.04) make it so that it won't mount on an OS X machine afterwards?
and what can I do to fix this? short of reformatting the entire drive
again and losing my backups?
