I just installed Fedora on my new laptop. I used Partition Magic to format a (large) partition of the main drive into Ext3 format. Then I installed Fedora on it. I can read the FAT32 Windows drive from Fedora (I mounted it on startup), but no matter how hard I try I can't seem to read the Linux partition from WinXP.
I've tried several different programs, as well as drivers to make Windows recognize the file system. The problem isn't so much that Windows can't read it, but rather that its not reading the right thing. The drive name from Windows is "/boot", and it only contains all the boot stuff for linux. It doesn't actually show the large (40+Gb) amount of space and the files stored there.
Anyone have similar issues? Am I doing something wrong? I'm a linux noob so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
