Only if the Mac wrote one.
History of the disk as I remember it:
Use fdisk to create the MBR with 2 partitions: initially FAT32 and NetBSD.
use disklabel to create matching disklabel. Initially put a NetBSD ffs in the
Let Windows XP format the FAT32 partition.
Some time latter decide I want to share the Unix partition between NetBSD and
MacOS and it looks like I can do this if its a MacOS X UFS so:
Use "Disk Utility" on the Mac to erase and reformat the second "Volume" on the
Disk as "UFS". (doing this caused disklabel on NetBSD to report partition f
as Apple_UFS rather than 4.2BSD)
Which gets me to where I am currently: the Mac can see the Volume the NetBSD
box fails to mount.
