    Recognisinh my Hard drive in 'Damn Small Linux'


    Okey, here's the problem. Yesterday my computer started re-staring when I loaded Windows XP, the loading screen would appear, the bar would go acrossa few times then my computer would just restart. It also did this in safe mode.

    So I made a disk of 'Damn Small Linux' I can boot off that fine and acess the internet, but I can't acess any of the files on my hard drive, I want to back up some of the files and burn them to CD. I tried repairing windows XP but that didn't work. So I'm going to format my HD after have backed up some files. Is there any way I can acess my files off this linux and burn them to CD, or some other way I can keep my files?
