    Hi flipjargendy,

    I am going to assume you are using XP and therefore the windows partitions will be formatted as NTFS. If this is the case, you can go to http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/ and follow the instructions there to get access to your Windows files.

    Hope that helps,
    Bryan
