I currently have 2 hard drives installed on my system. On the primary hard drive I have windows ME installed (FAT32). The second hard drive I use for storage and has a lot of important docutments on it. The problem is that it is a NTFS drive and I have no way of accessing it from winME. Is there anyway to save this data without installing winNT or win2000?

IMHO, you cant access ntfs partition from win me that means that it is impossible to read files stored under ntfs. But it can be done the other way. you can always use a rescue disk created using win2000 and accessing your drive and transfer all important files.

asyscokid should have what you need.  Just wanted to let you know the free version will not let you make any changes to the NTFS drive/partition. It will let yo open files though. Almost all software that reads NTFS partitions will require to purchase it if you want the ability to make changes to that drive/partition.

The free version will let you copy the files over to your FAT32 drive (they'll have read-only attributes though [easily changed]). Once you get all your data transfered I would advice formatting the NTFS partition to FAT32. You'll also need third party software for this as fdisk won't remove NTFS partitions. You could probably do a search on google and find the program you need.
