Any LiveCD that can recognize SATA and write to NTFS


I just tried my PCLinuxOS liveCD and it only had the ability to recognize my SATA drive. I tried mounting my drive as "-o rw" to no avail, and on their website they said you can't write to NTFS with PCLinuxOS.

Also on MEPIS's website they said you wouldn't be able to write to NTFS.

What distro can recognize SATA AND write to NTFS? I'm trying to rescue my dad's data and this is the only thing I need to get to do it.

Thanks

Linux and NTFS do not get along too well, from all I have read. Windows can read and write to NTFS.. why not recover the files with Windows XP?

INSERT has ntfs support, I can't see directly if it has SATA though.

To rescue data you merely need to be able to *read* it.
Write it to anything - fat32 is usually a good option.

NTFS is a proprietry FS - write support in any environment not written by the proprieter is flakey - at best.
(even captive is no longer maintained by the author)

DO NOT DO IT WITH DATA YOU CARE ABOUT
