Unhappy Lost Partition Question

I know this isn't a linux question but....

I messed up and lost the partition or FAT on the windows drive in my computer. I am still able to run Linux (SUSE) thank goodness.

I can still "see" the hdb1 (c/windows) when I look under system information, but I can't mount the drive.

I really need to either recover that drive, or at least back up some of my wife's files of of it before I throw a grenade at it. Does anyone have any words of wisdom/advise?
