I was browsing the net and I just found a really cool program. It's called explore2fs and it allows you to read and write to your Linux partition from Windows. Read support works perfectly while write support is still a little buggy. You can find it at http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/explore2fs.htm. While you're there, also check out the windows nt filesystem driver for ext2. It's currently in 0.1 beta though. Anyways, enjoy!!
