Recovering Files From Another Filesystem
I've been dual booting between Windows XP and Linux (Fedora Core 3) for a few months now, and a couple weeks ago my Windows system died (it stopped booting - it's having HAL difficulties). It hasn't really been a problem because I wasn't using Windows very much anyway, but it recently occured to me that there are some files that I need from my Windows hard drive. It doesn't really seem like it's worth the effort to try to fix get Windows working again, but I need to retrieve these files. The Windows hard drive is NTFS, and I'm not sure what I need to do to recover these files. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Just mount the appropriate win partition (read only), and copy the needed files. "man mount" for the syntax (not difficult, but I don't remember right now). You can also search this site, there are a lot of examples wandering around here...

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed. I'll probably work on this tonight, and if I run into any difficulties I'll post how I got around them.
