Well, some of the newer Kernals allow you to mount a Windows File System but only a FAT or FAT32. Currently I don't know of any support for mounting an NTFS Partician.
If you do a search of google for linux + mount + windows you will get some good pages.

I think the original poster wants to acces files the other way round :- ie access the files used by Linux while you are actually running Windows. I'm not aware of anything which will let you do this.
Anyone got any ideas ?

Yes Frank you are right, Anyway I did some research on the net and found something interesting.
If we want Windows files (FAT or VFAT) while running Linux in dual boot system then we can use mount command like this
$ mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
But If we are running windows and want to access Linux files then there are some tools they are:
LTools, LToolsgui
ext2fs ....
If you guys find anything interesting and more reliable than above utilities please let me know.
Also if you know any good links about wine please do post here.
Thanks,
Ravi Kiran
