    I wanted to rescue some files off a borked WinXP partition before trying to repair XP, so I got myself SuSe Live Eval (CD-booted) to access them and then send them safely over the network. But nooooo, SuSe hasn't compiled ntfs support into the kernel.

    So what I need now is a CD-based distro that has the NTFS support built in, at least in read only. Prefferably X and some FTP app as well if at all possible. ;)

    Does Knoppix have this? Any of the others?

    Also I'm in a bit of a hurry. :(
