    Viewing Linux Partition from Windows



    Hi, everybody....Linux newbie here.
    I'm running Windows XP and Mandrake 9.1 on different hard drives....from Mandrake, I can copy and paste files in Windows; but I cannot do it vicevera. Is there any way or command that would allow Windows to see or recognize the Linux partition without having to use a third-party software, like Paragon?
    Or maybe a more accurate question would be : Is there a command to mount the Linux partition so I can see it from Windows?
    Thanks.

    I have a FAT32 partition for sharing between Win and Lin. Other than using third party software I don't know what you could do.
