    How do I format a 120 GB internal HDD into HSF+ volume?


    Hi everyone! I'm new to linux, and I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer for myself.

    I have an internal 120 GB hard drive. I need to format this into HSF+ format. Currently the only OS I have is ubuntu. (I have a PC, not a mac, so unfortunately I can't boot to disk utility to do this)

    I am running ubuntu from the live CD only. I noticed in the gnome partition editor I can format into HSF, but not HSF+. It's a big hard drive, so it needs the HSF+. Does anyone know of any disk utility I can download for ubuntu to do this? Or maybe the command line instructions? Thanks very much!

    Maybe one of these packages in combination with GParted might help?
    Code:
    aptitude search hfs
    i   hfsplus                                                                - tools to access HFS+ formatted volumes
