Corrupt Superblock

I have just resized my c: and d: drive with partition magic 7 in win98 (didnīt touch my ext2 partitions). And now when i boot i get the "bad magic number in superblock" on my home partition (dev/hda9) i have tried to write:
mke2fs -n /dev/hda9
to find my superblock backup,and then use the:
e2fsck -p -b **** /dev/hda9
but non of the numbers work. The first numbers give me the same error, and the last ones give me:
Attempt to read block resulted in short read....
Any suggestions?
