    Hi to all,
    I would like to try to acces to an ext3 partition which is in an usb drive from within windows xp without installining anything.
    I need to access the partition both in read and write mode.
    Can I use portable ubuntu? If yes, can you give me some explanation on how to install and configure it. I need a very minimal system, can I remove unused programs in order to reduce the disk space usage?
    Thank you,
    Xwang

    Yes. look at the comments in the configuration file in the config subdirectory and read the "readme" for version 4 in the files section of this project.  The comments in the configuration file will tell you how to mount the directory that you want to access read/write when pubuntu boots or mount it with the mount command after Pubuntu starts up.  Pubuntu is not installed.  Just decompress to a directory and run it.
