Memory Card Data Recovery Program?


Hi all, a friend of mine asked me to try and recover some photos she deleted by accident on her SD memory card. Normally, I would flip over to my Windows box and do this, but I'm wondering if there is a Linux equivalent to a Windows data recovery program. I'm running Fedora 10. Thanks for any help!

Make a backup image of the card with 'dd', then run Photorec on the image?
