We've run a cross-mounting spiderweb between linux boxes and macs without
any drama. Journaled HFS+ RAIDs exported via NFS to linux boxes.. Perhaps
the restriction you're seeing is referring to when mounting the HFS+ volume
directly on the linux box, as opposed to an NFS mount? Which would make more

I'm not a guru on these things, but I think you can turn journalling off if
need be anyway.. so if you've external drives that need to be mounted
directly on a linux box switch off journalling first while it's plugged into
a mac.

References to HFS+ journalled not working on linux on the net seem to be
fairly dated... might be worth doing some tests..
