please do not mark threads as urgent, it is *not* urgent for any of our members. you should instead use a useful and informative title. additionally this is also clearly not an introduction to yourself and experience with Linux. moved to Linux - newbie and renamed accordingly.

If it's that urgent then you may want to look into a Knoppix Live CD (maybe any live CD) as a way to retrieve your precious data, saving it to a CD or DVD before you go trying to fix the problem and possibly making it worse.
