file systems drivers

There are several utilities available, but none look production-ready.

See the Filesystems HOWTO

Somewhere out there is a commercial ext2 driver for Win9x & WinNT. It may also have bugs, but at least you paid for it ;-)

Read-Only ext2 support seems to be your best bet. If you need to Windows and Linux to write to the same partition, use FAT32.

Subject: file systems drivers

I am dual booting my laptop with Windows 2000 and RedHat 7.1. What is the best free driver that will read ext2 file system from Windows 2000? Conversely, how can I read the NT file system (ver.5)from Linux? The man page for mount seems to say that ntfs is supported, but when I tried it, mount gave an error message saying the kernel does not support ntfs.
