You need Austrumi. It will do the same thing and then you can send the files over through your network to your other PC (if not make a network with some patch6 cables).

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/....2.iso?download

This does the same thing and is 50 megs.


Another options which is a better Linux but larger is Damn Small Linux.

Can a Knoppix CD read/write to a NTFS or FAT partition? I thought it couldn't??

it can write to FAT systems and NTFS is experimental. however, you don't need to write to those partitions! you'll just read from them and write them on CD using the tools provided by whatever Linux Live distro you use (Damn Small Linux as suggested is a very good choice), usually that tool will be k3b.

Why don't you just take the old hard drive out and put it in the new computer as slave and then copies the files that you need to the new HDD?
