    There is a program that will read Ext2fs for windows.

    If I remember correctly, on my machine it also read my Ext3fs.

    Anyways, the link is below. It is freeware I think?

    Have fun,

    I think you need the tgz file to match your controller under

    Linux source code release for HPT374

    download it, right click on it, click on "extract here". Then go to the new directory (it'll have a title similar to the download) and read the README or INSTALL instructions. Follow these to the letter and you should be OK.

    BTW, you'll possibly/probably get better answers to this in the hardware section or in the Debian forums. It's just that someone there might actually have done it.
