It's possible. I used something once, a long time ago, to fetch all of my
music from an external drive that I had been using on Linux (hence ext2)
so I could listen to it at work (Windows XP).
It was _probably_ ext2ifs, but I forget. Google showed me this page
when I searched for "ext2 windows",
which looks to be useful: http://www.howtoforge.com/access-linux-partitions-from-windows
PS - is /dev on your Linux box a real filesystem, or is it devfs?
(Man, I'm getting rusty. Hopefully someone with half a brain can reply
with a more useful answer ;) )
