Question Quick Question

Hello Again .. I desperately need help guys =/

I recently got hacked and I need to review my logs. If I slave the hd to a windows computer .. will I be able to see the linux files? Also on my other hd that I mounted as /home I have very important files on there that I need to recover and slaving it to my windows box is the only thing I can think of. Please help me!

windows isn't able to read ext2 or any other common type of linux filesystem. your best bet is to use a linux rescue boot disk to remount the drive that was messed up, and copy what you need from there to an accesible drive.

please post any further questions on this thread:
