I'm currently working on a driver for Windows 95 and Windows NT that will run under the IFS (Installable File System) for Win32. I'm at the stage right now where I can successfully read in the superblock and the group descriptors of a test ext2 partition in my concept testing program and am about ready to attempt to read the root directory. In a few days (hopefully) I'm going to be able to read some files from the drive. Write access will looks like it will take longer (because of the allocation algorithms and other bull).
