Hi, if I'm not mistaken, you succeeded in 'mounting' your troubled drive using 
a rescue cd, but failed to do it by mounting it on another system?
Well, rescue cd provides some basic networking (ssh and ftp). If you don't 
have a dhcp, you can set the ip manually and scp any contents of your 
troubled drive to another system in the network. Unless the rescue cd cannot 
recognize your network card.

All basic troubleshooting tools are there on the rescue environment (fsck, 
ssh, ftp, etc).
