Assuming it's on the same computer, but in a different partition, if you have the proper NTFS drivers installed and the Linux gods are smiling on you, you can access them with the (Linux version of the) filepath like any other file. In my experience, Linux was initially able to read from my Vista partition, but that seems to have been lost for some reason, as it doesn't even pick it up anymore. If they're on a different machine, use sockets just like you normally would to access another computer, I think.
