PowerBook - Dreaded BLUE SCREEN...

My PowerBook G4 using OS X.4 has the "blue sreen". I ran disc tools and did fsck, according to Apple's website, and still no luck. DiskWarrior was next. It reported the disc is too severely damaged code 2155/2179. What would be the best way to attack this problem? I can start it up as a "target disc" using Firewire to my G4 tower. I really would like to back up all my files if not all the settings before wiping out the hard drive. Is this at all possible? Any help would be appreciated.
