Linux Partition not recognized by XP

Hi, I have red hat 7 on my Presarion 700 compaq laptop. The 2GB Linux partition for it was created with partition magic 7 on XP (home edition).
(I have one 12GB partition for the XP and another 3GB partition of compaq which I do not want to change ...)
Now, I wanted to install RH 7.2 because I had some graphical problems and thought it would be easier .... but ... when trying to run partition magic it says : init failes : error 117 (????@#@#??)
partition's drive letter cannot be identified.
I've tried to install PM again, but nothing helped.
Fdisk, by the way, recognized two partitions on my computer - the 12GB and another one - 5GB (which is probably the other both patitions ....)
any ideas ???

Windows does not recognise linux partitions. However you can try Explore2fs.
