I have a notebook with an internal floppy drive.
OS is XP SP2 installed on NTFS partition. There are no other drives/partitions on the system. There is a pooched registry hive that prevents boot.
I only care to recover one excel spreadsheet from the system that wasn't backed up yet.

The CD I created (4.1.1) boots fine.
I have been able to browse to the file using various NTFS viewers in the File tools directory, but I cannot figure out how to get it off the notebook.
It strikes me odd that this wouldn't exist, is it just something I am missing? Seeing as the menu boots you right into the file manager, I don't see an option to mount a floppy.
