Help with a Backup/Restore

I had Debian Lenny installed and was trying to install a package (vpopmail-mysql) that failed so it is now not able to be installed or be removed so I did a dist-upgrade and the system did it's thing and downloaded and installed packages (but left the vpopmail-mysql). When it was done I rebooted and had this new grub menu asking if things worked to do a update-grub-install-legacy (think I got this command wrong) I rebooted like 5 times and it worked perfect so I did the command that it said, now I get an error 15 before it loads the grub screen. I reach for my live cd (slax) put it in and boot, but for some reason it finds my SATA drives but won't bring them up so I can't mount them to backup files from one SATA drive to the other so I can go about fixing this. Reached for my debian install cd but realized it was a net install which I couldn't do at this time so am now downloading slackware (had it before and liked it so wanted to go back to it). Is there a way on the slackware install that I can get in and move files from sda to sdb or some other way I could do it, it is just the /home and some folders in the /root directory that I want moved to the second hard drive before I go through the slackware install and partition and format the 1st drive, once it is installed I can mount the 2nd hard drive and have things back to normal.

The Clonezilla live cd is a small download with sata support, just exit to the shell when asked, mount your partitions and copy away
