I put dual OS in my desktop. One is XP, and another one is RedHat EL5. when i installed EL5 in my system, the XP content and my personal files gone. XP is in D drive and EL5 in E drive. My personal files are in C & F drive. Now I would like to recover C & F drive files. Please tell me how can i do it.

you may potentially get them back by using the dd command. Just at quick glance it seems like you are telling us that when you installed Red Hat you overwrote your C:\ drive that windows was on. Does that sound correct?
