When I work on my laptop I must use Win2k because it supports my linksys wpc54g wireless pcmcia card. I sometimes want to view a file on my linux partition, but I don't want to boot into linux for that.
Is there anyway to view my linux partition while running Windows?
There are some utilties which will allow you to VIEW linux partitions, however this only grants you READ access.
What I opted for with my Linux/XP dual boot system is set aside 10 GB of space for a FAT32 partition, the one file system both OS's can read and write to just fine. You'll want to do this in w2k. If you create it in linux, it seems to freak windows out and convince it its a ext2/3 file system anyway in my experience. A partition manager that supports NTFS and ext2/3 shoudl be able to set it for you as well.

You'd have to google around for the proper kernel module though.
Actually, most of the wireless cards are supported, but this is the newest 802.11g type card which is not supported in linux yet. Believe me, I've checked. I've even written to broadcom and Linksys with no answers.
