EXT3 R/W on Windows XP


Is there any way to get read/write access on an EXT3 partition from within Windows XP?

not a good idea windows for one thing can't set the file permissions like linux, for another microshaft does not try and facilitate your seeing anything but windows partitions also i think you would probably hose your journals.

Just create a FAT32 partition for use as a shared data partition.
