gparted error

I am a new user of Linux. And I am using the Zenwalk (so called mini-slack) in order to learn and get used to Linux. I just tried to format one of the sda drives in my system using the gparted. But I got an error saying that there is an error in formatting and the drive got formatted and showed it as an unpartitioned space. Is there any solution to mount that drive space into my system ?

Get yourself testdisk & photorec and see if you can rescue partitions or data respectively.

Open a terminal, su to root, and run "fdisk -l". Post the results here.
