Are there any live Linux CD's that read vxfs?

I need to use a Live Linux CD to boot into a box and backup the data off of it. It's a SCO Unix box and I want to know if there are any Live Linux CD's that read vxfs file system types? I tried DamnSmallLinux, Gentoo, Ubuntu, SLAX and Knoppix, but none read the file type. Is there anything out there that can read this (even if there exists a Live SCO CD)?

According to the GRML (www.grml.org) kernel config, this distribution should be able to read it (CONFIG_VXFS_FS=m). As you can see it is built as module, so you have to load it via modprobe!

You can transfer disk image into vmware and mount it into real linux with custom kernel inside.
