making use of unused partitions

I have two partitions of about 3 GB each which are left-overs of a previous installation and which I do not use any more. These partitions contain some folders that I can delete.
I want to use them for storing my data - mostly pictures I download from my digital camera and music files.
I want to share these partitions between my Slackware, Ubuntu and Windoze (though I rarely use it now) installations.
Any idea how to go about doing it?

Cool ext2fsd

If you will be in Linux most of the time, you might look into this:

The program basically provides access to ext2/3 fs under windows... allowing you to use it for a nice data store(Just an option, not necessarily the best idea).
