You probably will have to get a Virtual Machine. VMware is pretty good. They have a demo available for download. What you would have to do is run linux inside the VM and send the log files to the FAT filesystem.

There's a couple of utilities for mounting a partition or exporting files from an ext2 linux partition to windows.

Paragon Ext2FS Anywhere 2.5
explore2fs
