Maybe you're not such a newbee, but...
a) Sure you haven't on the failed server a dynamic ip from dhcp (from
knoppix)? Is the nic set to your old (static ?) ip address?
b) Works the normal (keyed) ssh connection from B-PC to your crashed
c) Have you mounted the suse-ext3 partition with read-write? Knoppix
normally mounts only ro.

lan or cd/dvd to your Server and extract it locally.
