reconfigure partition table


hi,
i have Red Hat Linux 8.0 installed on my server...due to a power failure, this machine was shut off. When i started this maching again, its not booting up...it has a SCSI harddisk. iam getting the error : " Replace boot disk and try again"...i tried to do a installation on the existing partitions...but setup said that it cannot find any linux partition....
i think i've lost the partition table...i do not want to do a fresh installation..as this will destroy all the existing data...

is there a way restore the partition table somehow ??


thanx
Regards
Santosh
