Question Read linux partition from windows


I was wondering if there is any program that will let me browse my linux partition from windows xp (i run both on the same computer) i know microsoft doesnt include that with windows because they dont want to encourage people to use linux, but do u know of any program from another company or from any tweak in the registry or somewhere else?

samba will let you share your linux folders and access them from windows

is that what you want or do you want to access the filesystem

I think there are still a few minor problems in the write code, so this is only pre release for now. When I get some free time, I'll do some more work on it.
Basically means DO NOT USE THIS PROGRAM TO WRITE TO YOUR LINUX PARTITION
