TGV AIR (Codeshare) Tickets and Reservations

I have tickets through Continental Airlines that include a TGV leg for travel between CDG and Marseille. Will be meeting up with friends who booked their flight through another airline and they've purchased their TGV tickets direct from SNCF. They have seat assignments. I don't. Is there a way to get seats reserved prior to exchanging my airline generated tickets for my train tickets at the TGV Air window at CDG? Thanks in advance.

First option: Call Continental Airlines and ask.

Second option: Call the SNCF English-speaking number and make your reservation. Dial 011 (US international access code) + 33 (country code for France) + (0)8 92 35 35 39. Omit the initial zero which is only used for calls originating in France. If you get an automated response, press "2" and you should be connected to someone who speaks English.

Thanks Tim. I'll do that. I just didn't want to end up on "hold" forever if someone could tell me from previous experience whether it could be done or not.
