Sorry if this kind of question has been asked before - I've done some searching but not found anything yet.

I believe I've damaged a HD partition table as the drive is no longer readable from XP, the Lilo boot manager has been trashed and I can't boot into Linux using a floppy. The drive contained NTFS and EXT2/EXT3 Debian 3.0 partitions. So far I've operated from Win XP on another drive. I've recovered all data from the NTFS partition using GetDataBack, but would like some help in recovering the Linux partitions. Still got a Knoppix bootable CD, but not very familiar with the Linux tool set. Ideally, I would like to recover the Linux image(s) and copy to a new partition. Alternatively, the only important data I need to recover from the Linux partions is Mozilla email.

Thanks for that Counterspy - I had found the page already since my original posting.

Although, it tells you the tools that are available it doesn't tell me enough about how I should be using them (or I'm thick?). Using Stella Phoenix Linux tool from XP I'm sure I could recover some/most of the Linux data.

What I would really like to do is re-construct the partition table or copy the Linux image to another disk. I now know what sector the Linux image starts and I can get access to the original lilo.conf file.  What else do I need to work out? If I know the disk sector isn't there some clever way I could mount the disk?
