    Not by default it cant, correct.

    BUT..

    Download and install this:

    http://www.fs-driver.org/index.html

    Then the partitions will show up in "My computer" and you can access everything from your linux installation!

    I believe if your windows partition was formatted in FAT32, linux could see it and vise versa.

    Could be wrong though

    Linux CAN See NTFS (Which is what Windows Vista uses exclusively)

    Well, Hardy Heron could. I think 7.10 also could see it.

    Not sure if you can Write to it though.

    True dat, but I was thinking more "default" and not having to install anything extra.

    Unless the ntfs support was packaged in 7.10 .... not sure on that

    You're correct, i'm reading / writing Linux partitions from Windows XP and vice versa. Dual booting currently with XP and Kubuntu 8.04
