Description If Windows won't boot, nothing gets you into your hard drive faster or easier than Puppy Linux. Puppy isn't the most powerful version of Linux by a long shot, but it's great for accessing NTFS-formatted hard drives--especially if you're not comfortable with Linux's whole mount concept. Just open the Drives window and select a drive, and Puppy will mount it for you--in read/write mode, if possible. If Puppy succeeds in mounting the drive with read/write permissions, you can not only copy your files elsewhere, but you can also edit them. Puppy Linux comes with AbiWord, which supports .doc files, and Gnumeric, which supports .xls. And even if it mounts read-only, you can still copy the files to an external drive, most of which are formatted in everyone-can- -write-to FAT-32. But be careful how you click. Actions that take double-clicks in Windows, such as opening a file, take only one in Puppy.
