Based on your earlier comment about "I hope I've left /dev/hda3
intact" and "no entry for /home in /etc/fstab" I'm guessing that
they're still sitting there on /dev/hda3.

Try fscking /dev/hda3, then mount it on /mnt and see what's in it. If
it's got your old emmajane directory then you can just add the
appropriate line in /etc/fstab.
