Commands to access a SATA drive

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I've damaged the drive I had in my Windows laptop and now I want to try to recover as many files as possible. I know very little about Linux though. I have Ubuntu 10.04 on another machine. I have a docking station for the drive and it is connected to my Linux machine. The drive appears in disk utility. Unfortunately, this is where I have no idea where to proceed. Any help is appreciated and I can provide more info if needed. (HowTos)
