Thanks Leo. I presume I can use any live CD? (I've got a hoary one lying
around). Mounting drives in Linux is quite a tricky operation for my
level of expertise (editing fstab etc). Anyone out there got a fail-safe
how to for mounting drives using a Live CD?

Ok, The data recovery might be easy enough...
Just boot with a live cd/dvd, mount your drives and copy your data to
wherever...

As for the the upgrade recovery...I have no idea...
