ext3 driver for Mac OS X

Hi all, try as I might, I can't seem to find a ext3 driver for Mac OS X (Lion would be ideal), can anyone point me in the right direction?

(I want to be able to read/write to a USB ext3 drive).

Reason? I have a QNAP Nas, which I'd like to have an offsite backup with, however there are files on the NAS which are greater than 4GB (which rules out using FAT) - the current QNAP supports HFS+ partitions so I thought that would work well, however when I tried to backup to my HFS+ formatted USB drive it started, but then failed (no meaningful error message).

Other than that, it supports FAT (not exFAT unfortunately) and ext3 (which is the native file systems on the NAS). So if I could format an external USB drive to ext3 I could use that for my backup purposes.
