Is there a proggie that can do this? I have a triple boot between winme/win2k/Mandrake 7.2(on hdd 2); win2k I have on a fat32 partition--so if it works in there that would be great but if not then one that will work in winme. TIA.

No, there's not. Well, it's possible if you run linux from a UMSDOS directory (like Zipslack does), but AFAIN you can not with Windows read from an ext2 partition (linux native filesystem). A solution might be to mount your HOME dir on a FAT or UMSDOS partition.

Angry explore2fs...

Thanks for reply--I did find one program that has the ability to read ext2 filesystem from either win95/nt/win2k; it's called Explore2fs. It's not recommended for heavy duty file manipulating and should only really be used for simply viewing the files. You can use to copy files over to your fat32 volumes but you should only do so in extreme cases.
