I've done it and I had no problems. I first formated the disk (105mb
syquest disk)  w/ the Mac (SCSI Syquest drive of course) then mounted it
on my Linux PC (IDE version of Syquest 270mb drive). It didn't give me
any problems though. I don't know if my drive being IDE or SCSI hade
anything to do with it. 

What you format it with may make a difference. As I recall, I used PLI's
formatter instead of just reinitializing the disk.
