combining unused space into files

(so I can manipulate them in the 40M partition normally assigned for
I want to get a literal straight read of the disk. Can anyone point
out how to do this.
To complicate matters, the machine has no netwerok connectivity;
it's a laptop, and the pcmcia hardware seems to have gone south . . .
