Reading Linux from Win32

For a while now I've been looking for a utility that would allow me to read files off my Linux drive while I am in Win98. After reading this article (thanks Linux Today), I discovered a group of utilities called LTools that will do just that. LTools works in DOS, Win9x, and WinNT. It even includes a mini web server that will let you use your browser as a GUI. Pretty slick.

One caveat: there are security implications. Anyone who can use LTools can edit any file on your Linux drive, although I'm not sure if you can change anything that is owned by root.
