What's the most straight forward way of accessing a laptop's internal HD from a live USB?

I've tried a damn small linux live USB drive, and then tried mounting the internal HD, but fdisk only finds the jump drive that I booted DSL from, none of the internal HD's

what os does the laptop run? Maybe the internal drives are not of a format DSL recognises? –  Journeyman Geek Oct 3 '13 at 5:28
