ATA disk drive not supported

I come from the land of WIN XP and the Blue Screen of Death.
and very new "Newbie"

I've installed Linux/Knoppix 5.3.1 and need a version of "sfdisk" that supports my ATA hd. The sfdisk (version 3.08 (,040824)from util-linux-2.12r) does not support the newer ATA hd.

Any other Utilities that would allow me to retrieve whats left of
my Windows files will be greatly appreciated.
