Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

All you really need to do is to get Windows XP to read your Linux partition. I believe there are stable tools for reading ext2 partitions from Windows, don't know about the journalled file systems. The other option would be to throw them on some removable media (CD-RW, usb thumb drive, etc.).
If you type "mount" at the command line, you can see from the list of mounted drives what type of file system your music files are located on.
If the partition is reiserfs, you can look around for some tools for Windows. Since I imagine you won't, here are a few I dug up from simple google searches, or even searches here on LQ.
If you are going from Linux (reiserfs) to Windows (likely ntfs), it isn't a good idea as write support for ntfs is still rather shakey. The simplest way would be to make a fat32 partition which both Linux and Windows can read/write to.
