Hard Drive crash -- NEED HELP!

I really need some help here...

I've got a Libranet system, been running for about 1.5 years. My last backup was too long ago.

My hard drive decided to poop out the other day. I've installed it in a winXP box and I've run a few recover utilities on it trying to get some of the data. R-Linux sees the partitions, but can't find a superblock anywhere on the disk.

I've tried e2fsck with every alternate superblock i could identify using mk2fs -n. No luck. Seems that all the superblocks are dead?

Is there some way to get to the remaining data, or am I totally hosed?
