You can read a Windows partition from Linux, but not write onto it. Perhaps
new technologies have emerged since I last though. From Windows, I do not
believe you have any access to a Linux partition. Microsoft refuse to
believe that anything but Windows exists, but maybe third-party software
will offer a solution. Have a look into Samba < www.samba.org/ >. Also
consider synchronising the data on an intermediate server, if one is
available to you. Also consider JPilat or KPilot. You should be able to
secure all your data without rebooting in Windows mode.
