    get a usb hard drive.

    download a ubuntu live cd
    use the live cd to transfer your data to the new hard-drive.

    i said ubuntu becuase i have used it and i know usb works with it.
    but other live cd's my work aswell.

    and Helix live cd when opened in windows will let you browse linux partitions also..
