Ok I just sold my Compaq Laptop and kept the HD. I now have a Powerbook G4 800 and 867 Ti Books that I am selling but for now I would like to use the data thats on the 60gig that I have now put in an external case.

What do I need to do to get OS X Tiger 10.4.6 to read a FC5 i386 Drive?

I think you need a miracle. OS X doesn't support ext3 file system. But you can ask in OS X forums.
May be someone had implemented ext3 on top of darwin

I can see it now, just not mount it. Its Linux LVM format if I can just figure out how to mount it.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsx/ Is that what you're looking for?

unfortantly that does not work with the drive plus it says panther only. I installed it but it will not load the partition with all the info so I am installing fedora core 5 on the laptop and trying to use a different file format.

Which part of "Tiger support is here!" is confusing you?

The part where it refused to even load the partition that Panther did with this program and reading the install guide that states it does not work with 10.4.X and above.
