OS boot from CD
I'm fixing a computer for a friend, and I cannot load up windows, except in DOs (yes I have tried safe mode) and I wondered if I could download an alternative OS that would boot from a CD (not a floppy, its a laptop). The problem is more that I need to backup his data, as some of it is very important, that is the hardest bit. Can anyone give me any reccomendations as to what I can/could download.
thanks in advance
