Ok, my freebsd (4.10) install is seriously messed up. Samba is not working, and I have been unable to get it working, I have no X Windows installed, no CD Burner, etc, etc...

I need to backup some files so they aren't lost when I install ubuntu.

What's the best way to go about this? Would a live distro of linux I can boot from CD work to get samba running so I can copy them? If so, which one?

Other ideas?

You could also use any live distribution and an USB drive.
Actually thought of that last night, going to try it soon.

Is OpenSSH installed and running? Is there a FTP server running?
