I've never used the System Rescue Cd before but I'm thinking that there would be a tool that you could use to mnt the external HDD. That is if a utility like that came with it.

Have a look in the System Rescue Cd Forum-

Any Live Linux CD/DVD should be able to mnt your external drive.

Make sure that the external is formatted.
