Can you mount Linux file systems and vice versa

Is it possible to mount a Linus file system under i386 NetbSD 1.3 ?
Likewise, is it possible to mount i386 NetBSD1.3 under Slackware Linux?

  I think it is, it works well under OpenBSD at least.

$ su
# mount -t ext2fs /dev/wd0h /mnt
# ^D

[replace wd0e with your harddisk/partition].

  Your only problem is that the partition may not appear in the
disklabel. You may have to add it with

# disklabel -e wd0              (maybe -E, don't remember)

simply add a line with a new letter (h in the example), by copying a
pre-existing line. Of course change the offset and size of the new
partition to match *exactly* what your partition really is (use

# fdisk wd0

to see a list of your primary partitions with their sizes). Also
change the filesystem type (fstype) to EXT2FS.

I hope there aren't too many errors, don't crash your harddisk :)

good luck,
Aymeric

that is correct.
