retireving files from live linux boot cd
excuse me, i am a real newbie when it comes to this stuff, i don't even know if i am posting in the right forum, i wouldn't know..
anyway, my uncle gave me this linux live cd that he said i can use if my windows ever messes up on me, and it did... turns out my copy of windows xp expired and it won't let me back in my account to access my files. anyway i was hoping this live cd could help me.
i have no clue what i'm doing, and my uncle is gone out of town. ive been browsing around and can't seem to find my hard drive on the live cd.
also, what program compatible w/ linux could i use to burn the files once i find them?
someone please help me out!
