Did you do a mkfs or format? If so, re-install.

Can you change the partitions back to the origional file system with the rescue without formatting? If that doesn't fix it, you will have to re-install, I would think.

They are gone if you did a mkfs on the partition that /home/Gerardo was on. That is the linux formatting command.

you can try to mount any partitions there as vfat,
in an attempt to rescue some data, in case you
didn't really format.

Creating and formating a partition that has data on it pretty much removes the data from any type of normal access for most computer users.
Zeroing and overwriting makes it even more so (which you would appear NOT to have done yet?).
If you are up on your computer forensics you may be able to find files on the partition with a binary editor, but I have no idea how you would actually recover them that way.
There is E2recover, but I don't know how current this is or if it works with ext3.
You can decide if your files are important enough to fool with this.
Good Luck.
