Using Phlak to rescue a computer

What I did to get data off a laptop before a reinstall of Windows:

‘cat /etc/fstab’ (to find the hard drive)
‘mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1’ (to mount hda1)
open a terminal (the hard drive couldn’t be read by the gftp started via right-click on desktop | Apps | Net | gftp. Probably b/c that started gftp with an unprivilaged user)
cd the local side to ‘/mnt’
log in to, user: local
select ../hda1 on the left side and click the transfer button. Woosh…
