Because this topic has come up a few times I decided to make this howto
- boot a live usb version and have the other disk/usb stick in the sytem.
- in disks management press clear config and import and identify which disk you are trying to access. in my case DA5
- enable ssh and connect to it via ssh or putty.
- identify the partition. using ls -la /dev/da5* in my case /dev/da5a
- run a file system check (""http://wiki.nas4free.org/doku.php?id=faq:0001"") in my case fsck_ufs -p /dev/da5a
- create a mount point and mount the system.
mkdir /mnt/oldsystem
mount /dev/da5a /mnt/oldsystem/

(option 1)
- copy the file via scp scp root@nas4free:/mnt/oldsystem/conf/config.xml .
(option 2)
- create a samba share.
- make the file readable: chmod a+r /mnt/oldsystem/conf/config.xml
- copy the config.xml with windows from \\NAS4FREE\oldsystem\conf
