This might be a pretty basic question.
I haven't worked with Linux before but there is a situation at my workplace where we have Windows workstation with Linux operating system. Here we have a requirement to map a Linux drive to windows. Can anyone tell me how to do it. Please let me know in details since I don't know about Linux much.
Thanks in advance,
SKCD

I explored the website of Samba for the info. Tomorrow I am going to the place where I have to actually do this. If I run into any problem, I'll get back to you.

http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/explore2fs.htm allows you to see the ext2 fs on the same machine from windows. Is this you are sking from? or are you trying to mount a partition of a machine running linux on another machine running windows.
