why not use okteta - the hex editor of kde? It should support all file 
systems that are supported through KDE's KIO slaves.
I don't know though whether okteta is available for KDE 3 as well or 
only for KDE 4.

Alternatively any other hex editor should work if you copy the files 
onto your local disk, fix them there and re-copy them back.
