rescue mode question


I was recently trying to rescue some data off of a temperamental Red Hat 9 system by booting DSL . Problem was when I tried to go to the specific users home/user directory using Emelfm it said I had no read permission. I finally used root to get the data. Could I have changed to /created a user within DSL that had the same user and group numbers as the RH9 system and used that user to access the files without changing to root? If so how would I do that?
On a another system (this one a hard drive installed Knoppix system ) I was again using Emelfm (from within a DSL live CD boot) to backup files (no issue with accessing the user's home directory - don't know why) but it copied some files and some directorys but not all. What is bestway to insure all the files are copied (if Emelfm isn't the best tool)?
Thanks and a great job with DSL!! Keep it up.
Ken
