Question File Recovery w Knoppix Partitions not Seen

I am trying to recover some files off a failed Fedora 12 install. When I run Knoppix 6.2 the only partition I see is /boot. I have 2 40Gb IDE drives:

+++++++++++
root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4865 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000f053e

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 25 200781 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 26 4865 38877300 8e Linux LVM

Disk /dev/sdb: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4865 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x73b073b0

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 * 1 4865 39078081 8e Linux LVM

Disk /dev/sdc: 2004 MB, 2004877312 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 7648 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 512 * 512 = 262144 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x2d95de6b

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdc1 16 7648 1953856 e W95 FAT16 (LBA)
root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix#
++++++++++++

I have tried using the commands found in Hack #75 Knoppix Hacks and got the following error.

+++++++++++++
root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# sudo mdadm --assemble --auto=yes /dev/md0 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sda1
mdadm: cannot open device /dev/sdb1: Device or resource busy
mdadm: /dev/sdb1 has no superblock - assembly aborted
root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# sudo mdadm --assemble --auto=yes /dev/md0 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1
mdadm: cannot open device /dev/sdb1: Device or resource busy
mdadm: /dev/sdb1 has no superblock - assembly aborted

+++++++++++++

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Val
