ACCESSING LINUX FILES UNDER WINDOWS
This step is a god-send for those on dual boot machines. It will READ it will NOT write.
1) Go to www.yipton.demon.co.uk
2) download 0.16 to your C: drive
3) unzip it (presumably using winzip) into a suitable new folder
4) click on the install.bat
this will copy two vxd files to the windows\system area
5) 3 fingured salute reboot This, sadly is necessary for windoze to register the newly acquired vxd's

6) Open up Windows Explorer and find the new file MOUNT.EXE. With the right mouse button held down drag it to a free area of the desktop, then select 'Create Shortcut Here'. This should leave you with a new icon on the desktop.
7) Right click on this icon
and select 'Properties'. The 'Target' text box should
show something like C:\PathToGoodStuff\MOUNT.EXE
8) Repeat steps 7 & 8for any other Linux drives/partitions you may have.
9) Now, double click on the
appropriate icon and you'll be able to see your Linux
files in Windows Explorer and read them into any Win
application. To get over the CR vs CRLF end-of-line
marker difference between Linux and Windows use Word or
Wordpad rather than Notepad to read Linux text
10) you can drag this icon
into your startup folder for it to be active at boot
