    Do you mean you want access to your swap partition, or is there a Windows install? If there's a Windows and a Mandrake install, then you should have at least 3 partitions (Windows, swap, and / ).

    As far as MSN messenger, give Kopete a try. It's included with Mandrake and supports the MSN protocol (along with Yahoo, AOL, and a bunch of others).
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Still not clear. Does your Mandrake work? If yes, then like Flatline says, Kopete will work with MSN Messenger. If you want to access files on a different partition, you will need the "mount" command. What files do you want to "transfer"?
