Sql Server DB recovery

we had a drive begin reporting errors. we can get it to spin up to retrieve data but cannot get it to boot to the OS to get a backup. Is there a way to take sql files to recover the DB? We don't have a backup.

without detaching the database from the DB engine, attaching the mdf and ldf to a new install of sql may throw your DB into suspect.  You can work around this though.  WHat version of SQL are you running and tell me setup (was the sql engine and all the databases on the same drive, was this in an array, etc)
