Installed gentoo over fc8 by mistake. Help!
I accidentally installed gentoo over the ext3 partition I had fc8 on. The gentoo install failed due to some unrecoverable error. Now, when I select fc8 on grub, it starts loading gentoo and fails to mount partitions. This isnt really a problem for me because i was going to remove fc8 altogether anyway. i just have 2 important documents in fc8 which I need to copy before i remove it. I have a usb drive however i cant mount using the prompt since it says its a read only file system. Though I can access the directories and files just fine. How can I overcome this? If there's no direct way thorugh the limited gentoo prompt, can I do something with a live cd of some linux distribution? If so, which one?
