accessing the MS windows partition from Linux
I am new to Linux so please forgive me if this is a silly question and/or I do not include enough information.
Anyways, I am using a computer which has both a MS Windows and a Linux partition on the hard drive. I was wondering if there is an application which makes it possible to access information and files from the Windows partition without having to exit Linux and reboot.
Thanks for any information you can offer and please let me know if you need more information to help me out!

you can mount Windows partitions in Linux. all Linux distros support read/write access for FAT32 and read access for NTFS partitions.
in terminal/konsole, execute this
fdisk -l <--- its small 'L'
note down FAT32 and NTFS partition names... /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1 etc...
create mount points and mount partitions.
mkdir /media/windows_c mount -t ntfs /dev/<name> /media/windows_c
in case, partition is FAT32, replace 'ntfs' with 'vfat'.
if you couldn't mount, post the output of 'fdisk -l' command here.
