I seem to remember a set of tools called ext2tools which
will let windows access another ext2 partition.

I'm not sure mounting to a drive letter is available but
it should definitely let you access it from windows.

Are you trying to do this locally or over the network?
Good point...

My comment was if the linux partition is local.

If over the network then you want to use Samba.
