I'm guessing that most people running a RAID solution on their Mac probably have it formatted as MacOS Extended (Journaled) - which wouldn't be readable by a PC running Windows or Linux without third party software - and even then I doubt that it would work.

If you want to fork the money out:- Mediafour | MacDrive (http://www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive/)

That software is advertised to make HFS+ (mac formatted drives) compatible with XP/Vista. I haven't used it so if I were you I would look for reviews before you buy.
