Use PCLinuxOS...

If you have installed any files on PCLinuxOS that you want, you can use it as a live-cd to copy them to some other medium.

Using it as a live-cd, you can open a terminal and use the command "fdisk -l" to see your partition table and note what is installed and where.

Using the partitioner GParted included in PCLinuxOS gives you a graphic interface to work with if you find that more intuitive.
