To make it very simple, I would burn a puppy linux boot disk. From there you can manually copy over all your files. Or you could use a program such as Macrium or Todo on a boot disk to do an actual backup. The former method is more flexible.

Burn Puppy to a CD. Boot from the CD. The USB ports will work under Puppy, and you can save your data to a USB stick.
