if you have the exact geometry of the partition you may be able
to re-create it. I would say live & learn, reinstall and next
time do a backup. I did the exact same thing back in 95 or 96
when I first started playing with slackware..it's painful but its
a good lesson. recovering such data is quite complex, and I've
never lost data that was so important that I was willing to
spend thousands of dollars or dozens of hours of time trying
to reconstruct bit by bit ..

I wouldn't be suprised if this was a common thing :) all the more
reason not to dual boot on the same disk(or even dual boot at all)
I suppose.
