Advanced partition selection cannot be compiled as a module.  I checked.

Anyway, I've recompiled and rebooted, and the partition table STILL doesn't 
show up.  But I found a workaround: I've hooked up the hard disk to my 
MacBook Pro, and I'm scp'ing everything to my Linux machine.  It's slower 
than connecting the drive directly to the Linux box, but at least it works 
(and it's not painfully slow).

I'm still interested in being able to use disks partitioned on a Mac, but at 
least for now, it's not an urgent matter (it was urgent until I found the 
workaround because it involved the computer of my dad's ex-wife).
