Installing Tiger on an HFS+ (Mac OS Extended) filesystem will
automatically turn on filesystem journaling for that filesystem. If you
want that filesystem to be able to play nice with Linux afterwards, you
must turn off that journaling before Linux sees it. If it already has,
do an fsck under Tiger after turning it off.
