Mounting Ext2 or Ext3 partitions?

I was wondering if there was any way of mounting an ext2 partition?

trying to mount it straight on gave me this:
/Volumes root# mkdir LINUX_HOME
/Volumes root# mount /dev/disk0s7 LINUX_HOME 
/dev/disk0s7 on /Volumes/LINUX_HOME: Incorrect super block.
is there an ext2 module or something? And yes, I do have a fully functional debian system on my powerbook, too.

Thx all for your time!
