View Full Version : Linux under Win2k?
08-28-2003, 01:23 PM
Is it possible for me to access data located on a separate hard drive with Redhat installed while I'm booted into Win2k on the same machine? Ideally I would even like to be able to run Linux applications on that drive through Win2k. VMWare allows this, correct? Is there any other software that has these features?

Well I found two programs capable of reading ext2/3 partitions:
If anyone has experience with either, I'd love to hear about it. Otherwise I'll probably just test both.

The strategy I'm going to use is to keep a sharing volume of my primary Win drive formatted to FAT32 -- which Linux can read. Red Hat can't read NTFS, at least according to what I read.

Linux can read NTFS, wrriting to it is the problem.

I have used ext2fsd under XP and Win2k and had no trouble (havent used it extensively though)
I usually make a bin directory on c:\ and add it to path, then I throw all binaries like this into it.
