I have a PC with SUSE Linux operating system. My operating disk 'c'  has got some errors and won't run after booting. I have downloaded live linux on to a DVD and this loads AOK on the DVD rom. I can now see my Hard Disks  'C' and 'D', however I have not got permission to access them. I want to see if their is any data on 'C' that I can save by copying to the 'D' drive before replacing 'C' with a new drive and reloading operating system.
Thanks in advance

Most live CD's let you work a an average user,
try to use sudo to become root.

Then you can use all the tools needed to mount/cop etc. disks/partitions.

you might want to look into dd-rescue of ddrescue to copy all data from the hardisk.
(partiotion / disk wise).
