Sharing hard-drives between Linux and Mac OSX (tiger). Which filesystem?

I'd like to share a hard drive between my Linux system and my PowerBook. I'd prefer to format the disk as ext2/3 or reiserfs, something that Linux systems are familiar with, but it's necessary that the PowerBook be able to read it when connected to a firewire enclosure.
I tried formatting the disk in Mac OSX as "Unix Filesystem" using disk utility, but I can't see any partitions when I hook it up to the Linux system. Likewise, I can't see anything on the ext2/3 drives when hooked to the Mac.
Are there any ext2/3 drivers for Mac OSX Tiger? If not, what are my options on the Linux side for reading something that a Mac spits out?
