Actually there's a ext2/3 driver for XP - I think read-only. There's a
control panel applet which allows you to assign a drive letter to such
a partition - probably Windows would continue to consider the second
partition as C:. It would be interesting to experiment with that.
I use the driver read-only on my laptop, on the few occasions I boot
into XP. But the Windows partition is the first one in my case: XP was
installed when I bought the computer.
