Gddrescue and testdisk are not on the 12.04 ISO that I downloaded and burned to a CD that I'm currently using to boot my system. Where do I point apt-get to install those packages?

I have Internet access but got this results:

root@ubuntu:/# sudo apt-get install testdisk
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done 
E: Unable to locate package testdisk
root@ubuntu:/#

Both packages are in the Universe repository. See this question to enable Universe repository :

In order to install them with the following commands you need an Internet access for your machine.

Testdisk Install testdisk:

sudo apt-get install testdisk

Gddrescue Install gddrescue:

sudo apt-get install gddrescue

For installation without internet access see

If that is not possible you may also try with a live rescue CD remix that already has these tools installed (e.g. SystemRescueCD, TestDisk Live CD)
