Copy bad HD to a good HD

	I have an old HD that will not boot up and show windows, but 
does run. I would like to copy as much as possible from the 
bad to the good HD.

	First I thought about dd. It looks like $ dd if=/dev/scd 
of=/media/disk/backup bs=2048 conv=notrunc and it looks like 
it might work.

	I also have condaliza-live latest version on a cd-rom. I am 
not sure just how to use this.

	Does anyone have a suggestion on these or other methods to 
get data off of a bad Hard Drive (HD)?
