TBH, a recovery disc will most likely wipe the drive anyway. I'd try and recover what you can from the drive directly before trying that.

Just take the HDD out of the PC and pulg it into another PC with a working OS on - make sure you boot from the working OS and then once in you will be able to drag the data right off of it.
All this assumes that the HDD is physicaly ok though....

or boot it from a knoppix cd/ usb stick=- or similar live linux CD - This will let you mount hte disk and copy any information off onto a network location. Then you can reinstall and copy the data back again.

just using an linux disc to recover what i can i just need the recovery media now

It may not necessarily be recovery media you need, if it has an OEM COA attached to it then you may be able to use an XP Disc / ISO

If this belongs to a student, and you have taken the time to retrieve their files from it, why do you need to fix the OS? That's the job of a PC repair shop, surely (unless you're doing it privately, of course)!
