try explore2fs - that will allow you access to files on linux partitions from windows, but it's read only. see link:

The simplist way is to have a FAT32 partition somewhere on your drive that you can mount in both linux and windows.

Not quite - you can gain read-only access of Reiser partitions from Windows. Check out:

Enjoy!

the FAT32 partition will do the trick; i found it easiest to re-install windows first, and partition part of the the drive as FAT32 (you have to make a partition that is <= 30GB for this), then continue the windows installation, then linux. you'll be able to swap stuff between linux and windows on the FAT32 drive with no problem.

Better yet, access your NTFS partition directly (read AND write!) by upgrading to the 2.6.15 kernel.

On windows - I would reccomdend using www.fs-driver.org to access and write to ext2/ext3 partitions. On linux, you can def. read NTFS drives, but writing to them has always been sketchy and dangerous (unless DRASTIC changes have been made in 2.6.15... I know it says write support, but so far we're only able to modify files, not create/delete/change size)

Fat32 is a good solution for a shared partition, except for the 4gb file size limit - the biggest file you can store is 4gb, so no dvd rips.

If you wanted true universality you would share a drive over a network using samba or nfs - that way linux/mac/windows systems could all access and modify it.
