Out of the box windows can't handle ANY
of the possible filesystems in Linux, so that's
a no-go.
As for windows from linux...
have you tried mounting them yet?

Code:
man mount
in a terminal should get you started...

Cheers,
Tink

Sure can.

Also you seem to be asking very common questions, you should really try searching on this site: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/search.php

Or a good search engine like www.google.com/linux

Regards.

Where are the drives connected? Primary Master, Secondary Slave...
Linux refers to drives like this: hda=Primary Master, hdb=Primary Slave, hdc=Secondary Master...and so on. A partition is specified by a number. hda1 would be the first partition on hda.
You will have to mount the Windows drives to see them in linux, using the mount command in a terminal/command-line:

mount -t vfat /dev/<disk-name-here> /any/folder/here

This mounts FAT32, for NTFS:

mount -t ntfs /dev/<disk-name-here> /any/folder/here -o ro

<disk-name-here> is usually a partition, such as hda1.
To see the Linux partitions from Windows, use the Explore2fs program (assuming the partition is formatted in ext2/ext3).
