I run VMware workstation with Ubuntu on it on my Windows XP box. Is there a way to access the Linux filesystem inside the Virtual machine from Windows?

Take a look at the VMware Workstation 5.5 Disk Mount Utility

The most recent versions of VMWare have that built in; go to your virtual machine settings, hard disk, utilities, and "Map virtual disk"

Can't you set it up as a file server and access it that way? You could also probably use telnet to remote into the ubuntu machine.

Sharing folders is another solution to do it while having the VM running.
