Ok today my computer crashed on me and is refusing to boot windows and i really need to get some files off it. If i run knoppix live cd 5.1 would i be able able to transfer pictures and music to an external hard drive or is there another version of linux that would be better suited to this situation and my hardware.
Laptop - Sony vaio VGN-FS315S
Ex HD - Freecom Classsic SL 250GB
Thanks for any help, regarding this matter.
