You can just use the windows explorer (I think) and find your home folder on drive E:, expecting that all the files you need are in the home folder.

No, you can't. Unless he installed on a fat partition, which I don't think he did.

There are drivers for ext3 for windows, I think. Some searching would find what you need.

as far as i understand putty is a ssh utility for windows.I did not get hot it can help me,if i reboot my pc for windows,linux telnet deamon will not be available.

What I look for is a program that does the same job with linux-ntfs(http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/ntfs.html#4.4) for windows

I'm using one with good result

I'm using an older version of this one since about a year ago:
http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/ext2ifs.htm
It works good. I use a read only driver for safety reasons. If you are using ReiserFS there are some links on the page.

There are other drivers too:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsd

Yo can use Total Commander with an addon that enables to see linux partitions under windows. The linux partitions are read only for security reasons. Addon name is Ext2+Reiser 1.3.

I installed ext2 driver from http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/ext2ifs.htm

but on windows all my drives seem to have NTFS format, including the drive where fedora is installed.
So I can not make use of this driver

Did you try Explore2fs? It can read stuff like LVM that other programs and drivers can't.

I'm pretty sure that linux can't be installed on a NTFS partition... There used to be a version of slackware that you could install on a fat partition, but it didn't go far.

In linux, open up a command line and as root, enter:

fdisk /dev/hda (assuming hda is your disk)

once the fdisk prompt comes up, type in P and hit enter.

Copy and paste the output of this here for us to read, maybe someone can help you a little better.

Once you're done with the fdisk prompt, type in Q and hit enter to quit.

Using windows Disk Manager,I droped the NTFS partition and re-created a new logical partition on the empty space.
Now windows reports file system type of drive E: as Unknown

and FC4 fdisk gives:

Command (m for help): P

Disk sda: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
sda1 * 1 11473 92156841 7 HPFS/NTFS
sda2 11474 24316 103161397+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
sda5 11474 17846 51191091 7 HPFS/NTFS
sda6 17847 17859 104391 83 Linux
sda7 17860 24316 51865821 8e Linux LVM


since Windows does not recognize the space as ext2 or ext3, ext2ifs-0.3 installation can not be competed stating that No EXT drives found

If I choose drive E: from the File->Open Image File menu,a dialog opens 'Drive is not formatted, Do you want to format now? ' and I say no to this in order not to loose any data
