Mount of .dmg (mac image) files on Linux Fedora fails



Hello,

Why can't I mount a dmg (macintosh image) file on Fedora 11 ?

I tried mounting several .dmg mac files did not have any success with it.

Here is an example:
I downloaded "Firefox\ 3.5.6.dmg" from
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html?product=firefox-3.5.6&os=osx&lang=en-US

running:
file Firefox\ 3.5.6.dmg
gives:
Firefox 3.5.6.dmg: bzip2 compressed data, block size = 900k

Running
mount -t hfs -o loop Firefox\ 3.5.6.dmg /mnt/mac/
and:
mount -t hfsplus -o loop Firefox\ 3.5.6.dmg /mnt/mac/
gives (in both cases)
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

end in the kernel sys log I see:			
can't find a HFS filesystem on dev loop0.			
unable to find HFS+ superblock

Any ideas?

Rgs,
Mark
