Boot from CD and try to mount your hard drive from the drives icon on the desktop.

If it mounts you will see the files and folders in the Rox window, just plug in a pen drive and copy the files to it.

You could also remove the puppy CD and then burn the files to a CD or DVD.

BTW what is the problem with the hard drive? are you getting an error message? It might be recoverable if you could provide some more information.
