Is it possible to read files on a linux partition (ext2,ext3) like linux can mount windows? is there a way to mount and unmount a "hidden drive" in windows quickly without having to go through a rigerous (spelling) changeing of things?

Don't think so..

When you install a linux distro, simply create a fat32 partition. It will be accessible from both OS without too much trouble.. ext3 are "like" ntfs.. they are protected filesystem, but with proper setting (i'm speaking about ntfs) it can be read & write from other system.
 
Oops. this thread is pretty old.. and should have his place under the Linux sub-forum :|
 
There is exlporer2fs which [I think] can read ext2 and ext3 filesystems from Windows. never tried it though.
 
you can use PartitionMagic to browse any file system it supports. this include ext2, ext3 ... etc.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
