it's the same with the same effect.

you probably can get lucky if using some kind of tool to repair the
partition table. I have been using ghost and partition magick. I bought
recently a partition recovery tool for windows for about 45$. I don't know
if there are easy and secure ways to restore the windows partitions resp.
the table in linux. For ext2/3 I have used fsck and recover or e2undel.

you can consult this too http://unixwiz.net/techtips/recovering-ext2.html

but for windows I'm not quite sure

usually vfat stores a backup of the table - I don't remember in which block
