    moving files between windows and linux

    I just installed Mandrake 9.1 and have a separate drive with Windows. The problem is, my modem isn't working in Linux and I need to transfer som files from my NTFS windows drive to the linux drive. The problem is that Windows doesn't even know that I have have two disks and Linux can't read the NTFS drive. I could burn a cd, but that will be kind of irritating in the long run. Is there any program to transfer between files systems?

    Try e2fs. Good for transfering files between windows and linux.I got it off a pcplus cdrom a few years ago, maybe still available from their download site?
