I have a laptop with Win Vista and Ubuntu.  I loaded the Ubuntu via Wubi.  I almost always use this for Ubuntu - never Windows.  But now when I try to boot into Ubuntu - it fails and reboots.  There is some message that comes to the screen so quickly I don't have time to really see it.  Something about "connected"?  Anyhow - I have some source code I need to get off the Ubuntu side of the house and then I could just rebuild.  Does anyone know how I might be able to grab those text
files from the Windows of the house (booting into Windows Vista)?  Thanks.
