Default FAT32 access NTFS

Hi everyone,
I need some help

My Windoze XP Pro seems to have crashed (big surprise).
On the same disc, I have a partition running Windoze ME.

I need to save some of the files on my drive before I reformat it.
Unfortunately, the XP partition uses NTFS while the ME partition uses FAT32.

Is there any way or program I can use to access those NTFS files while in ME?

Any suggestions?
I'm not too geeky, so be gentle.

Thanks in advance,

Either get a 3rd party app or set the NTFS partition up as a network share and access it over a network.

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
