Please forgive me if this is a resend... I'm new to this system - duh!

I have an intel imac which does basic stuff, cos that's mostly what I need.
I have an old ibook which has lots of family stuff on it and the small drive
seems to have become suddenly corrupted.. "the volume could not be repaired
- underlying task reported failure on exit" and that sort of thing. Disk
warrior, or disk utility cannot rebuild/repair the thing. I can get it to
start up with the installation disk in the drive but it will not install a
new system on the existing volume unless I reformat the drive - and lose all
the data.
I can firewire target the disc and it shows up on the imac but I cannot drag
any files across... it just seizes up both machines when I try. I don't
think there's a "mount point" - whatever that is..
I do not understand even the most basic command line instructions... which
is why, after all the other newbies got their questions answered, I STILL
can't figure it out.
I have downloaded ddrescue-1.10 which contains 20 items - none of which can
I recognise as anything that I can do anything with.
Please pretend that you have to give a step by step in this process to a
small, albeit fairly smart, kid who just glazes over at the technotalk.
Can anyone please help. I'm not trying to save the drive, just the data.
Thank you in advance for your time, patience AND CONSIDERATION.
