    According to http://library.morph.zone/Filesystems, Fast File System 2 (FFS) seems not so bad. It should be the same implementation by Olaf 'olsen' Barthel as used in OS4, up to and including DOS\6 and DOS\7 modes (long filenames). Unfortunately, the Linux FFS implementation lacks DOS\6 and DOS\7 modes, so if Linux should be able to access the partition, file name length is restricted to 31 characters.

    The most inherent issue is probably that Linux doesn't know SFS by default. There is a kernel module available, but I don't know if it can be made to work with current kernel versions.

    Thanks, that's about the most useful post made so far in this matter.
    Now I have something to work with.
    Linux isn't essential.
