Smile Any small size linux live cd or rescue cd have a samba server function.

Hi, i having a problem on if a system Operating system faulty cannot boot and use, than i need to tranfer data from this OS harddisk, i wish to use a method is don't open the CPU case, just using a linux live cd or linux rescue cd to boot it, than using samba server to share this harddisk on my network, because i am using windows xp. than i can tranffer data from this pc without open CPU case... I have try to use many of Linux live cd & rescue cd but i think dont have a samba server function so i cannot share the hdd drive, i try on RIPlinux, damnsmall, systemrescuecd, finnix-9.1... all dont have samba server function. Any one who know have a livecd or rescue cd have a samba server function? or any more good idea, thank you....

Try Ubuntu? Any current version can act as a live CD, will mount your hard drive manually, and should be able to work a SAMBA server. I have never tried this, so best of luck!
