The FreeBDS dox claim it's been able to read and write ext2 since v2.2 (there's a kernel module to install). ext3 is a little strange, and ext4 is read-only. No mention that can find of FAT anything. But *surely*...

And, of course, you can communicate with it via IP (FTP, SSH, etc.) or NFS or tape (maybe; I don't know for sure that their tar/dump write tapes like Linux does).
