Can i see linux partition inside W2K ?

Few days ago, i submited a thread (Is there a way i can install W2K without damaging my RH distro and docs?).

Well. Someone replied me with this:

The short answer is that there is no proper NTFS write support yet. (There is some experimental stuff.. but it is difficult to set up.)
Copy any important documents over to your Linux partition and start over

After I copy the info and files i would like to have over my linux partition and install W2K successfully, how can I move them back where they belong if NTFS does not support (write mode) ?

Will it work if I format the W2K as FAT32? Will it be better?

Please Help me !

There's a utility available on the web somewhere called "explore2fs". It can read linux partitions and copy files over to a MS-Windows partition. Not sure about NTFS support. A quick google and some reading of their documentation will tell you if that's the answer to your problem.
