Can I try to rescue data off my dead macbook?

Looks like my macbook's harddrive just failed. Sucks. Some of my data is not backed up. What should I do before taking it to the apple store?

Running 'first aid' disk repair off the installation disk failed. Should I still try target mode? Is it possible to back up, or even inspect, a mac drive over target mode with a firewire-equipped PC? Or will I need to borrow a mac from someone?
