1st ext3 is just ext2 with a journal to help with file system consistency take a look at Wikipedia page
, usually ext3 will be installed by default.
2nd The partition will only be called E:/ in windows, drives and partitions are handled differently in linux, everything will be under / (root) so if you install the windows driver then you can use (write, edit, delete ...) ALL the files in the partition. But it wont use the journal so if/when windows crashes there could be some damage to the file system.
Also windows won't be able to use the unix/linux file permissions (so any file can be modified or deleted by anyone logged in to windows) so it's not too secure.
