Access EXT3 partition form windows
Is it possible to access a ext3 linux partition from windows 98 ? Is there a driver or program I can download to do this (read/write ability)?

Not that I know about it. But I once heard about something to show your Mac partitions from within windows.

The possible no-software-needed solution for this problem is to put the files you need in the FAT/NTFS partition from Linux.

Not so sure how thats possible (Mac OS on PC ? / Windows on Mac ?):confused:

acess them from Dos maybe? I think you can get into any partition in Dos if you know the right commands. Dunno if it will help you actually do anything but see the files though. I could be totally off though and it never work at all.

As far as I know mac and PC harddrives aren't that diffrent. You can hook your mac hard drive to your PC.

Powerquest makes (well, Symantec owns them now) a product called Partition Magic. In version 8.0 (the most recent) they introduced a file browser that could read files from nearly any partition on any drive in your machine. There is no write support that I know of though... I have read from EXT3 while inside of WinXP. Don't know about 98, though. I assume it would still work.

I use a program called explore2fs to read from my linux partition while booted in MS-Win.
