If you're using ext2 there's recovery tools
out there ...

If you didn't make too many changes,
use your installation CD's and copy the
one that came with your distro.

If you're very proficient with linux, go
init 1, unmount the drive and search
the raw-device with grep looking for
known content of the file :} ...
