Sure. You can access fat tat32 ntfs and many other format from linux. All you have to do is mount the partition. Mount it if you can , or if you need help on mount , reply here. Ok?

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/winxp

/dev/hda1 is the first drive, and the first partition
/dev/hdb1 is the second drive, first partition

the -t is for type
