Yes, I know, that's why I did not want to copy it from or install anything on the HD, or try to recover the XP, appearently something heavy fell on the laptop so the HD is probably not so healthy…. I do use some linux, but I am not so updated in which one could run on USB or on live CD, thanks a lot for your help.

O yeah it was a typo I meant dist.

I will try later tonight!

O BTW, can any of these live linux distros mount a somewhat damaged NTFS filesystem drive? I used hard drive manager 6 on the distro I installed to mount it most other programs I tried failed to reach the data on it. I found some info about it in the link you sent PJ, but I am confused, he creates a directory????? is this directory created in ram memory or some such? if I am running from live CD it could not be created anywhere else?

Thanks again!
