    How to view/manage ubuntu drive from windowsXP

    Hi,

    I have to 2 OS, windows XP and ubuntu. From Ubuntu I can view/manage files from the windows XP drive (NTFS formatted) by default. But I can't see the drive where I installed Ubuntu from windowsXP.

    Is there any software that allow me to view/manage files from windows to ubuntu?

    Thanks

    I had a choice between fs-driver and LinuxReader from Diskinternals, and chose Linux
    Reader because there were a few reports of fs-driver corrupting the partition over time.
    LinuxReader lets you read Ubuntu and copy files (extract) to XP but not write to Ubuntu.
    You can install fs-driver in read only mode, but it also assigns drive letters to partitions.
    One guy reported that XP had started monitoring the Ubuntu drive letter for system
    restore and he couldn't turn it off.
