Make sure your kernel has the driver for hfs+, either compiled into the kernel or as a module.

I have a Panther partion on hda3
I try to mount it with the following command
mount -t hfsplus /dev/hda3 /mnt/macosx
I have hfs and hfsplus loaded as module, when I run the command it just hangs, C-c and C-d don't do anything...

Verify that hda3 is the correct partition.
Check dmesg.
If you are using an older kernel, consider a newer one, >= 2.6.13.

dmesg | grep hda3 didn't return a thing
mac-fdisk -l /dev/hda tells me hda3 is a Apple_HFS partition

using 2.6.12

I would reboot the box, then check the tail of dmesg, then try to mount the partition and then check to see if anything is appended to dmesg that might help resolve the problem.

You might also try strace-ing the mount command.

There may not be any useful debugging information. It may also be that this driver, kernel, and partition map combination just does not work.

I just learned, that the case-sensitive hfsplus (aka hfsx) isn't supported by the linux kernel :?
oh, and it seems yaboot has problems with an hfsx formated osx partition, too

I don't think it's the default, but tiger can create case-sensitive HFS+ partitions without using cmd line tools, so watch out! ;)
