Access linux files through windows?
Samba is the Answer
I also was wondering how to do this today. As far as i know, this can be done using samba (www.samba.org) which allows you to set up a shared folder in linux.
I don't know how to access it from windows, but there is good documentation available on samba's home page. You might want to read some of it, or you could always wait for someone else to reply.

is this on the same computer or a different computer?
same computer - linux and windows dual booting.
Samba is used for seeing stuff on a different computer.
However, if you wish to see your linux partition from windows (i.e. both partitions are on same computer), there are several tools available and they depend on the filesystem you use.
For ext2/3, check out explore2fs, yes it can read ext3 also.
For reiser, check out YAReG or visualrfstoolLife is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
Sorry, through you ment two computer on a network, one running linux and one runng windows. I am afraid samba won't help you view linux partitions.
