Well the problem is that I really doubt Parted on the Debian Installer is build
with the --enable-hfs-extract-fs option (it should not be anyway...), so
that will only give him the lastest version (which is already quite good)
but not the capability to extract the file system structures.
I did a quick review of differncies between the HFS code of 1.6.22 and SVN,
and I don't think the version will make any difference in his case, but
maybe I'm wrong... If I'm not the file system structures would be very useful
to understand what's happening.
