  1. What flavor of XP?

    have you tried one of the Live-CDs like Ubantu Live-CD. It will allow you to run Linux of the CD and should give you access to the folder. you can copy the content to a USB flash drive.
  2. Well , i have windows xp professional sp3

    Thanks for your advice , but one more thing , Could ERD work too as linux ?
