It needs to see the /dev/md?  device, although it should be able to
do that with just one disk of a raid1 set.  If you have other
drives in the machine, you can 'cp -a' directories from one
to another.  If you have other Linux boxes on the network with
ssh enabled, from knoppix you can 
scp -rp localdirectory root remote_server:/path
or
tar -czf localdirectory |ssh user remote_server 'cat >/path/file.tar.gz'
to salvage whatever knoppix can find.  If you really have a hardware
issue you may not have much luck, though.
