Now to see the linux partitions you need to double click on penguin icon. I have downloded this to my laptop which has windows xp and ubuntu linux installed and you should see in the following screen my ubuntu linux partitons hda3,hda4.

 If you want to see /etc files in my ubuntu linux partiton you can access like windows explorer and you can see the list of files in the following screen

Personally, if I still used Windows I would use EXT2 IFS, since this allows you to mount your Linux filesystem as a real Windows drive (including the capability to write to it, although readonly is an option too), complete with a drive letter and the ability to access it from ANY Windows program
