recover data from formatted hdd

Hi all, sorry to bother you, but need some help.
I made a terrible mistake and formatted, installing Linux SuSe 9.0, my Windows XP Pro partition (FAT32). Does anybody know a way by which I could recover my data? The laptop boots normally under Linux SuSe 9.0 and obviously does not boot anymore under Windows.
Thanks for the help,

It might be very difficult indeed to recover your data, you may have to contact a data recovery expert in your area.

You can use Active@Undelete software to recover lost data. It supports large variety of fuctions and recover methods, supports many file systems(FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, NTFS5,...) and operating systems. It is your best chance to try recovering data. Visit their site THIS IS WINDOWS SOFTWARE to download and find more info.

Brrro - every post you have made so far is an ad for this software. I class you, therefore, as a spammer. Your account is now disabled. Please contact jeremy to have it restored.
