    Ack, I lied. I misread the question.

    It is possible, but difficult. See smolloy's post below for details.

    Not easily.

    You will have to download and install software that allows windows to read ext3 (the linux filesystem -- your linux filesystem may be ext3, or it may be a number of others).

    In my opinion it is a little dangerous for windows to access linux files as windows is not really linux friendly!!

    You could install something like ZIPSlack, which is Slackware on a FAT32 filesystem. That way you should be able to destroy your Linux installation using Windows
    I\'m so tired .....

    If you have formatted your Linux partition as ext3, use Explore2fs. If it is formatted as resier, use rfsgui.
