1. Plug in the USB drive
2. Unmount it: sudo umount /media/usb_drive
3. Create the partitions: sudo mac-fdisk /dev/sda

The next step gives an error: Mount the drive for copying the files
$ sudo hmount /dev/sda2
hmount: /dev/sda2: not a Macintosh HFS volume (Invalid argument)
Here's the partition map:
$ sudo mac-fdisk -l /dev/sda

/dev/sda2 Apple_Bootstrap boot 2015168 @ 64
(984.0M) NewWorld bootblock
Block size=512, Number of Blocks=2015232
