I always visit this site using the front door and usually see some new headline that catches my interest and requires further investigation. The Explore2fs "utility" for Windows seems like a little jewel that may help many a dual booter resolve/rescue data on their Linux drive/partition.
I have 2 SATA drives 1=Linux FC5 and 1=Windows XP. I had no problem accessing and writing a DVD.iso from the Linux drive while in XP. Also I went to several Linux directories and viewed some text documents while using explore2fs and copied them to the XP desktop.
I was really surprised at how easy it was to use and access files. Thanks for the info!
