I've used "hexcurse" on Debian. It's a simple curses based editor 
which looks similar hexl-mode with the hex & ascii on screen at 
the same time but does not do emacs' buffering or temp files. It 
has "find" and "goto" for hex locations, but not much else.

I've not used it directly on a file system though, only a dd image 
of one.
