I have succesfully use GNU parted to restore deleted partitions on two
computers.  You can download the boot disk and root disk images from the site
and write them to floppies, or if you have a spare Knoppix CD it is probably on
there too.  I am not sure, but the Woody install CD may have a rescue mode as
well (you pass it in is a boot parameter and then you go to a shell where you
can start messing around).
