The tool you're looking for is called Explore2fs and it works (quite) well for [r]reading[/i] from an EXT2 filesystem, but I wouldn't try to write to one! And there is no support for Reiser or anything else for that matter - only EXT2 (ext3 will also work, I believe, because it's basically they same )

Hello there. There is actually a free prog out there that can read ext2 partitions from windows. It's called ltools. It basically a command line utility but you can get a gui if you have java installed.
ltools isn't perfect, you won't be able to move more than one file at a time from you ext2 file system to windows. And writing to ext2 is at your own risk. But still it's better than nothing.
