Need help with dying drive/restoring data

Help! My laptop drive seems to be dying, and while I did keep backups, the
last one was a bit old.
When I boot up, the drive makes clanking sounds I've never heard before, and
never finishes the load. I'm going to make a rescue disk, but does anyone
have a strategy for how I could handle the delicate job of getting my
updated data off the drive without making matters worse? So far, I figure I
will boot the rescue disk and try to mount the filesystems.
