The most obvious thing is to boot a Live Linux and copy the file that you require.

Supposing that this is of course a XP Grade system and not the newest Hardware that has been back loaded with XP. If it's new Hardware you may have the Safe Boot Option and the associated crap that could brick the unit.

For a Live Linux you can look here

http://livecdlist .com/
remember to remove the space from between livelinuxcd and the .com for a working link.

Or you could try your local Newsagent for a Linux Mag with a Cover Disc containing a Live Linux.
