Ubuntu

I just finished finally being able to get XP and Ubuntu dual-booting.  I'll be the first to admit that I'm a total Linux newbie, so any assistance someone could provide would be most appreciated.  Here's the scenario:

I had 2 NTFS 40gb hdd's, C and D to make it easier.  XP was installed on C, and I used Gnome Partition Editor to partition C into 2 partitions, one 7gb for Ubuntu and the rest for XP, which worked great...the 7gb partition is now using FAT32.  So anyway, when I'm using XP, it only sees D and the XP partition of C, and when I'm using Ubuntu, it can only see it's own 7gb partition from the C, which I assume is the way it's supposed to be.  My question is is there anyway that I can access the files in the XP partition and on the D drive while I'm using Ubuntu?  XP will still be my primary OS and it's where I can do all the normal stuff like game/movies/music and develop web applications, but I'm wondering if I can still access the same files using Ubuntu that I can using XP?  Is there anyway to make Ubuntu see the other aspects of my hdd's besides what Ubuntu will see by default?  Thanks.

may be a better alternative for reading windows partition from Linux. Try both and see which works best for you.
