Hi

While I wait for my new iMAC to be delivered I am trying to sus out how to get the 200+GB of data from my external HD (it's a 300GB drive formated with reiserfs, I use Linux as well) onto my new iMAC. This way, once the data is on the MAC, I could reformat the external HD to the ext2 file system (supported by both MAC and LINUX), and then push back over to the external HD.

Does anyone know of an easy solution to this? I could go down the route of setting up a SAMBA server or similar, but if there is an easier way, thn please tell me.

Also, does anyone have any positive / negative reports with regard the ext2 file sytem and it's MAC support?

Cheers
Steve
