I had a virus that kept rebooting my system. So I installed Linux on my computer, ran the virus scanner. I have never used Linux until now. I would like to access both partitions. I have Windows XP, with Office Pro 2007 on one partition. How can I access it?

    Hi Sonya

    Before we can help you we need a bit more information. You said you ran the virus scanner, did it find anything? Haven't this fixed the problem?

    If you're looking for a way to access the partition with your Windows files you can do this from DOS. But that requires some minor knowledge of the command line. Are you familiar with it?

    I'd love to answer your question, but it be a great deal easier with a bit more information. What flavor of Linux are you using? Is it, for example, Ubuntu?
