View Full Version : Linux under Win2k?

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?

Thanks,
Sean.

Well I found two programs capable of reading ext2/3 partitions:

explore2fs
http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/explore2fs.htm

and

ext2fsd
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsd/

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.
