how to mount a FC6 partition on Windows?

Hey All,

I've been searching all day long and my mind has kind of gone numb...
So I wanted to ask you guys...

I just got a 500GB external drive(usb) and mounted it on my FC6 as ext3.

Is there a way I can mount it from my windows box (say drive Z.

These are 2 different machines behind my router in the same subnet.

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated...thanx...

Just install the ext2 (and 3) driver available here. I use it on my dual-boot laptop and it works like a charm.

Any volume mounted under Linux can be shared over network for Windows machines using Samba.
