Default bootable cd

I know of Knoppix and i use it a lot but it doesnt mount fat 32 or NTFS partitions. Is there any other bootable linux's where that happens so i can salvage files from windows and burn to a cd using the bootable cd.

yes it does

mount /dev/hdx /tmp where x=drive designation/partition-->ide master drive single partition would be hda1
then cd /tmp and ls -al
if it gives you grief over file type when you mount the drive add -t fat32 or -t ntfs to it

for details on the mount command try "man mount"

oh ya, ntfs is read only, fat32 you can read or write to the drive

the mount command with no parameters shows whats mounted at the time
