    Default Configuring Windows to access Linux partitions

    I can access Windows partitions from Linux, using ntfs-3g.

    How can one configure access of Linux (all are ext3) partitions from Windows ? Am using Win XP Professional SP3, dual-booting with Linux (openSUSE 11.1).

    Google for 'windows ext3' and have a shot with that.

    Good luck.

    Possible problem:

    Many programs have (had?) problems with ext3 if the inode size was 256 (default on many newer distributions)

    Code:
    su -c 'tune2fs /dev/Your_device -l | grep "Inode size"'
