Is there any known way to be able to read/write Linux drives from windows?

I have a drive for windows and a drive for Linux and I'm wondering if there's any way to access my ReiserFS Linux hard drive from windows.

I don't know how effective these are, so use at your own risk -

I haven't run across anything that will do reiserFS yet. Good luck!

Windows does have an Installable File Systems (IFS) facility, and drivers available do include, among others, ext2/ext3.
