Search for Target Disk Mode. No, it's a normal Mac process to mount the drive on a dead mac to a working one Via Firewire.

Here is one URL that goes into a lot of detail. If you still can't figure it out let us know.

If the drive in the one Mac is really bad, I doubt you will be able to read it but give it a try.
