There are utilities that will let you access ext3 file systems from
XP, but for what you are after, you may want to take a look at:
It is a script that lets you do a one-time boot in a different OS,
and then boot the default OS on the next boot. You could use it to
boot into XP, and then boot back into Linux on the reboot.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
