I have a question about converting partitions. I have a number of Linux Ext2 partitions on my PC which I want to convert to FAT32. Does anyone know a program (which I can freely download ;-)), which is capable of doing this? I've already tried it with partition magic 7 but I always get an error.

No, I do not believe you can do this.  I think your best bet would be to back up the files to CD-R or some other medium, then recreate the partitions as FAT32 and recopy the files.  FAT32 and EXT2 are too different.

I could be wrong...but I'm pretty sure I'm not.

It seems a goal of this project will allow you to do this, but its not clear if its working yet, and the project is in alpha-stage.
