Read ReiserFS on the fly as a mount in Windows

I have tried several ReiserFS reading utilities in Windows, what i want with a ReiserFS reader is to mount it like another drive or path in Windows so i can reach my music collection in Windows and play it on the fly from winamp while working in Windows, instead of duplicating it to my NTFS partition.

Thanks in advance.

Linux and Windows can both access a vfat partition. That is what I use.

Microsoft assumes it owns OSs, so it tends to ignore "foriegn" filesystems.

Linux will mount just about any filesystem, so I store my oggs on a vfat/fat32 filesystem so that I can play in either OS.

Yeah i tried YaReG, but it won't let me read files on the fly, instead i have to copy them first and load them in a program afterwards, what i am seeking is a method to access my files without having to copy them to my NTFS partition first.
