I've just set a dual boot with Redhat 8 and Win2k, and finally got Linux to recognize both FAT32 and NTFS partitions, and am wondering wether there is a an easy way (if it even exists) to read ext3 partitions from windows. I have seen it on TechTV before where they had a dual boot set up and windows recognized the linux partitions, but thats been a couple years ago now, and I don't remember.

Thanks, Eric

I've used a program suite called LTools that ran a "server" like program on Windows 2000 that you could connect to using either it's java frontend or a webpage frontend. I always chose the webpage frontend because it was much easier. But, it allowed you to view your linux partitions, i don't recall if you could write or not to them. A quick google search shows me a home page of here for LTools. Enjoy.
