HD Recovery thru Mandrake
Ok, I've got a few questions, but here's some background first:
My mom turned on her old PII POS this morning and it fried. Literally. I'm pretty sure it was the CPU that went. The good news is that the HD looks undamaged, and there's a good bit of data on that disk that some people want recovered.
The old HD runs Win98.
My machine runs Madrake 10.1
So here's the question(s):
To recover the HD, can I just plug it into my machine as a slave drive (after switching it's configuration to slave), boot mandrake, access my "new" HD and pull whatever data the family wants? Or is it more complicated than that?
Because I don't want to spend $85 for a disk recovery...
Any help would be appreciated, I'm going to go search for tutorials in the meantime.
