Question Read windows drive and ftp contents

Hello. I *really* hope someone could be good enough to help me on this. Bear with me, this is a linux question after the windows tatter...

I have a dedicated windows server with oneandone, which i used to administer via Remote Desktop. Last night I was configuring IPSec to lock down some ports and accidentally closed ALL the ports. I can no longer gain access to my server. (applause)

My hosts offered two choices - re-image the server and lose everything, or create a linux boot and allow me to use ssh (putty) to login to the server and FTP my data to my computer at home.

I've been a windows programmer for years, but when it comes to linux I know nothing. It's imperative that I get that data off the server before it can be re-imaged, my business will fail otherwise. I promise to backup every day after today!!!

I would love it if somebody could list the commands or point me in the right direction in order to achieve this.

The server has a drive C: and a drive E: - my data is on E. I need to login using putty, and ftp the entire contents of drive E to my home computer. I'm not sure if drive E is fat or ntfs, if that matters.

Please, please help!
