Sorry to butt in here, I dropped by looking for Amiga FFS (or Amiga SFS, which
will also do) partition mounting in FC5.

FWIW, I've got FC5 installed on my Peg2, and there is an ext2/ext3 FileSystem
for AmigaOS/ MorphOS someone wrote. Doesn't do everything yet, but it gives
warnings when it can not do something. I've got it working one way now: On
MorphOS I can read/write on my FC5 ext3 partition.

If I can get FC5 to read my FFS partition, that would be fine. Maybe I'll try
the SFS thing first. Anybody know where to find these?
