Nope! I tried all of them, excep hfsprogs (it's in 'unstable') and seems
to be having some problems (see older posts).
What seems strange to me is that checking the hfs partition with
(MacOS9) Disk First Aid doesn't evidence any problem on it.
May be it has something to do with that partition having been once 'shared' 
on the private net?

Thanks to all who answered. Regards,
