1. look for ext3 drivers for windows on google as linux is not using the same kind of filesystem as NT
2. You migth find http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/ext2ifs.htm

Under WIndows, you cannot do this by default, you need to download a utiliy to share ext3 files. However, you might be best doing this the other way round i.e. booting to linux and sharing your windows files, or writing whatever files you need to CD then loading them into your linux system.

If you have NTFS, then you probably won't be able to write to your windows system from within linux, but you should be able to mount it. It should actually be detected automatically in distros like SuSE and you only need to click on an icon on the desktop to read the files.

--> how can I share the file on my window to linux?

If your windows partition is NTFS you can't do it by default (ie. RedHat).
You can recompile linux Kernel to see NTFS partitions in read mode, also you can write but it's strongly discouraged.

The best solution would be recompile kernel to read NTFS and create a third FAT32 partition to use for sharing files between the two OS.

Explore2fs, the WIN32 explorer for Linux ex2fs partitions

Users of NT who have problems with partitions which are not detected can now use the Native IO feature of Explore2fs.  This uses the partitions as identified by NT at boot time.  This access is not available from the Win32 subsystem so Explore2fs can bypass Win32 and interface directly with the Native API.

This supports drag and drop, as well as many other improvements. Subtle bugs in write support are being ironed out as well as other UI improvements. Despite being version 1.00, I think Explore2fs will join the list of 'Permanent beta' software, for now anyway.

Currently, I don't have any time to develop it, but when I get a chance, I plan to implement more functionality, especially language support.  I know there are a lot of non-english speaking people who I could make life easier for.

I think there are still a few minor problems in the write code, so this is only pre release for now. When I get some free time, I'll do some more work on it.

Have a look/download here http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/explore2fs.htm

For reading the NTFS from linux have a check here http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/ntfs.html#4.9

Hope this info can help :)

In my experience, Pauls suggestion of explore2fs is one of the best working windoze utils (and resonably priced... since it's a free download:-). It's a bit less intrusive than the ext2ifs (also written by John ´Newbigin). Write support is still marked experimental, but it works more or less... also with ext3.

I care :)
GnsCommented:
I think Pauls is perhaps the best answer, although you others aren't "wrong" either... And HaldorG and linux_geek is noticeably  "faster":-).

Thanks Glenn.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:
Split between HaldorG, linux_geek and paullamhkg
