Question file system size larger than physical size:superblock or partition table corrupt

I am (was) running mandrake 10 official.
I used partition magic in win XP (stupid, i learned the hard way) to resize a data partition (FAT32) which involved changing the linux partition size also.
Now mandrake doesn't load and tells me that the file system size is larger than the physical size according to the superblock. The superblock or partition table is corrupt.

How can I fix this?

thanks in advance,
