How to retrieve files on HDD using Ubuntu Live CD?

My computer wont boot up. Before I try to fix it, I want to backup some important files off my hard drive. They say you can do this by booting up with a Linux live cd and going into the hard drive from there. But when I go into Places->Computer my hard drives arent there. The only drives I see there are my DVD burner and “filesystem”

How to backup files on a computer with a corrupted OS?

OK, so someone I know has a copy (literally, a copy) of windows XP and now it says that it’s not validated and wont boot into windows. Now, I’m going to install Linux on it (xubuntu) but I want to back everything up first. How can I do this? I’m messing with puppy linux on a live CD but would like to know if there is a better way.

Thanks in advance,
Well, there is another computer that can be used and I will be using my iPod as an external hard drive to back up the files.
The computer wont do anything so… I need a live cd to do anythign with it
