	That's a bummer, because HFS+ is currently the only filesystem I've
thought of which is robustly usable among all three of MacOS 8, MacOS
X, and Linux.  I want one that has multiuser and secure (permissions)
properties.  UFS seems to do for Linux and MacOS X, but what about
MacOS 8?
	I have a 2 GB disk in my low-end Powerbook Wallstreet II, so I need to
share among OS's!  ;)
