Linux access from W98 in dual boot.


In my dual boot setup I can access windows files when booted into linux.
Is there a way to access linux files when booted into windows?

It depends on the filesystem. For ext2/3 you can use explore2fs in windows. However, I would consider it still read only support. If you really need to share files between windows and linux IMHO a FAT32 is the way to go.
