this volume is HFS+, am I right?

try:
mount -t hfsplus /volume/path /mount/path

note:
/volume/path would generally be in the form of:
/dev/sda1

/mount/path is a directory you want to mount to.

Thanks for the reply Aizmov.

yes, the volumes are HFS+ but their not on the same box.

my lack of understanding is howto mount over network.

"try:
mount -t hfsplus /volume/path /mount/pat
h"

the portion /volume/path, would that include an ip or something?

just in case were not on the same page (assumingly my behalf) i have one box running suse11 one macbook pro and one power mac,(of course routers and switches and modems) and need to share files between them, and i prefer the AFP way because more services can use the protocol.

For mounting over a network you have to use something like NFS, SMB or Apple's AFP.

You can use AFP, and there are opensource implementations of AFP available.
I haven't tried it myself, but it shouldn't be too difficult.
