Are files in Ubuntu installed with Wubi readable by Fedora?

Assuming all three OSs are running on one machine (and not at the same time), a samba share will do you no good.
LVMs (standard in Fedora installs) are great until something breaks, then they are a royal PITA. Almost everyone who has had one fail (that did not absolutely need one) will not use one again. With the exception of contiguous space all the advantages of a LVM can be easily be done without using it. In short, when LVM blows, hang on to your shorts.
As far as the WUBI problem; that is probably better answered over on the Ubuntu forum (its their baby).
WUBI would have put all its data onto a single file on the disk. You need two steps to read out that file:
1. mount the NTFS partition - once you do this then you can find that wubi file somewhere in the mounted directory
2. mount the wubi file using the filesystem loop device:
mount /mnt/ntfs/mywubifile /mnt/wubifs -o loop
This mounts the file /mnt/ntfs/mywubifile onto the mount point /mnt/wubifs
If you do not use 'autofs' you will need to specify the filesystem to mount via the '-t' flag - for example - mount -t ext3
You can do all this as 'root'; if a normal user needs regular access then you should set up fstab entries.
