well do you have the copy of the old partition table
it is always a good idea of backing up your partition table
(by copying the content of fdisk -u -l and fdisk -l in a paper
and redoing(repartitioning the table by fdisk when something happens)
don't worry though there is a utility called testdisk
which i am sure will come in handy in your case

I've used gpart to do this.

A copy of this and a CD- or floppy-based distro should get you your partitions back. After that, you'll have to get it booted, but the hard part will be over.
