I just figured the problem with my firewire harddisk out. Somehow MacOSX overwrite the partitiontype for my datapartition. It changed it from FAT32 to FAT. Where WindowsXP seemed to ignore this, the Mac relied on the specification, where a FAT partition cannot be bigger than 2 GB.
So after changing the partitiontype to FAT32 in Linux (with overwriting the partition table and rescuing it after all... gave me some headaches) he likes the whole bunch again ;-)

(And I found out, that I was lucky, because before my Upgrade to 10.3 the Mac wouldn't recognized a FAT32-partition bigger than 128GB)
