[RndTbl] Another followup to HFS+ partition on a USB drive

 Not a problem. Just a followup.

 Last night I had a friend format the area I reserved for Mac stuff on the 
hard drive. It was formatted HFS+. The Mac mounts it and the M$ partitions 
fine. The Mac sees the ext3 fs as a UFS (Unix File System) drive and does not 
mount it. Linux doesn't see the HFS+ partition. The hardware browser program 
in Fedora 2 says there is no file system on the partition. I haven't tried it 
under M$ yet. Past experience says it will only see the FAT32 partition.

 So far this drive seems to be happy with what I throw on it. Apart from the 
HFS+, everything is EASY to do with Linux.
