My hard drive crashed and will no longer boot. I plan to access the drive from a live cd and then copy the contents of my /home to a usb drive and then to another hard drive.

I am asking for some help on how to do this, i.e. exactly what to type make sure that I am copying all of the files. I know I could google this but I wanted to get some feedback from others to make sure that I don't screw anything up.

thanks in advance!

Have a look here (http://lmgtfy.com/?q=backup+files+using+ubuntu+livecd). This should help.
