There's some chance.  You'll almost certainly get data back but it may not be 
what you want and it will be difficult to determine if you've recovered what 
you wanted.

You can run "reiserfsck --rebuild-tree -S" on the partition.  Read the 
manpage, understand what it will do.  Backup the partition first so that if 
things go wrong you'll have a second chance.

This command will rebuild everything that it can find on the disk that looks 
like a file and put it in lost+found/#somenumber

The files won't have meaningful names but if you know what you're looking for 
a combination of file, grep, etc. can probably do it for you.

Good luck and make sure you have good backups from now on ;-)
