testdisk (included in rescue cd) is also good for recovering deleted
partitions or lost partitions as it happened to me a couple of days
ago.  One of my engineer's desktop would not boot - all partitions
were lost.  fdisk -l showed no partition table.  With test disk I was
able to recover the partitions.  re-install grub (again using rescue
cd) and boot the system.
