If you're talking about a situation involving networked Linux and Win boxes, then Samba is the answer. If your Win and Linux Partitions are on the same system, you might want to check out explore2fs.
I haven't used it myself, so I can't vouche for its functionality (which appears to be "read-only" at this point), but it apparently lets you have some access to ext2 (not sure about ext3) partitions under Win.

There is, it's called Explore2fs. You might notice the bright red warning at the top of this page.
