Question:  4.5. Can Linux Access OS/2 HPFS Partitions?
Answer:

Yes, but Linux access to HPFS partitions is read-only. HPFS file system access is available as an option when compiling the kernel or as a module. See the Documentation/filesystems/hpfs.txt file in the kernel source distribution. ("How To Upgrade/Recompile a Kernel.") Then you can mount HPFS partition, using, for example:

   $ mkdir /hpfs
   $ mount -t hpfs /dev/hda5 /hpfs
