hi,

i want to mount linux partition on win98 os for files sharing. can anyone suggest a software that i can use.

currently i'm using ext2fs from p/a/r/a/g/o/n which is a shareware version. the limit is that it can only mount partition that smaller than 1g and read only. i can say this is a very nice software but the function is limited in the shareware version.

thanks for advice.

did you want to share files on the same computer or in the network?

I have checked paragon's ext2fs anywhere that is a really good software.
I think that it is a best solution on windows platform.

srik provides alternative way that is free
but it can't support like ext2fs anywhere powerful feature.

I think Ext2fs Home Page be useful - http://e2fsprogs.sourceforge.net/ext2.html.

FSDEXT2 : Second extended file system for Windows 95 - http://www.yipton.demon.co.uk/ - Fsdext2 is a port of the second extended file system (ext2fs) to Windows 95; albeit a read-only version.
Using FSDEXT2 you can transparently mount your Linux ext2fs partitions on Windows 95.

[Ext2Fsd] -- Ext2 File System Driver (This project is an ext2 file system driver for winnt/win2k/winxp.) - http://www.tuningsoft.com/projects/projects.htm#ext2fsd - only for NT/2k/XP.

Careful with ex2plorer

That program is great for reading files from a linux partition but not so good at writing them. You can end up hosing your whole filesystem if you aren't careful. THere's a big warning about that in the readme.

IMHO writing ext2 (or ext3) partitions from not linux system is always bad idea. Writing NTFS from Linux is not good idea too :( All because of file permissions. So I think all these drivers are usable for reading and shouldn't be used for writing - better way is reboot and read from sevond system.

BTW: Total Commander (5.5 or newer) can read different file sytstems. I'm using ex2fs plugin v1.2. Works very good :) Linux drivers are availabke by Network Neighberhood.
