As many others have said, linux might be able to mount the cd for you and
save some data.
What I'd recommend: put the disk in a computer, and dd it. That way you'll
have a bckup to play with, without harming the "defective" hard disk any
more then is absoltely necessery.
dd if=/dev/hdb1 ~/mywindowspartition.img
This command WILL take some time, and will create a single file, as large
as the entire partition. Make sure you have enough hard disk space.
This is assuming your windows partition will show up in linux as hdb1. Use
fdisk -l /dev/hdb
to see what partitions are on the disk. Keep in mind that if your
partition table is hosed, you might not actually *see* any partitions.
Your data may still be there though.
mount -o loop -t ntfs ~/mywindowspartition.img /mnt/floppy
Cross your fingers and look in /mnt/floppy
