Make a Linux boot disk, get the computer up and mount the drive.  When the 
drive is mounted, FTP to your linux computer, and then copy any info you 
need.  You would have to be pretty fluent in how to setup Net cards in 
consel mode, but as long as  you can get net card running this should work.  
You could also try to resize the HD partion, and install linux to the 
laptop(not fun).  other then this you could always boot it up with a linux 
floppy and tar suff onto flopies
