Reading Linux's ext2 and ext3 partitions under Windows

After unsuccessful installation of Kubuntu, I decided to move some data I've downloaded from Kubuntu to my Windows.

After searching the Internet I found
It is very easy to install. You choose drive letters for partitions, and then use them as regular partitions (it has kernel mode and extend Windows so it can read ext2 or ext3 just as fat or ntfs).

Also, you will have to choose if you want to install support for larger files (above 4GBs). File with this size cannot be saved to Ext2 on Linux with kerver <=2.2 (read FAQ) - so, if you have older kernel choose not to install support for larger files.
