I am very new at this and just want to run a live Linux cd to delete Windows xp viruses on my ntfs D drive. There is an article at
but I am confused about one thing. How to mount the drive when Windows did not shut down cleanly. This is explained in the above article, but I am wondering if someone can re-explain it in different words. What exactly am I supposed to type to be able to see my drive if it cannot mount?
Also, is the latest version of Linux the best to use, or should I use something like Puppy Linux. I have 256k of Ram and I want to run the CD in the live mode just to delete Windows viruses on my ntfs D drive, and then boot back into Windows. The Windows C drive I can restore from a Ghost DVD.
