FireWire disk - sharing with an iBook?

I have a Lacie Firewire pocket drive. I'd rather like to be able to use it
on both my Debian (Sid) box and my iBook (Mac OsX).

I have no problems making it accessible to either machine but neither
seems to be able to read the other's partition table. Is there any way to
be able to read a Mac partition table on the Linux box or to write a
partition table on the Linux box that will be readable on the Mac?

The fact that a colleague has a USB keyring solid-state disk that is
readable on Mac, Linux and Windows without any problems suggests that it
should be possible
