Default My FAT32 died, how to recover my data?

Hello!
That's what my disc structure used to be

C: FAT32 6GB
Linux SWAP 1GB
Linux EXT3 14GB
G: FAT32 15GB
H: FAT32 20GB
I: FAT32 10GB
J: FAT32 45GB

System: Windows 2000, hard drive Maxtor.

Unfortunately, I messed up with Windows partition management program and now, when I launch my PC I only see partition C (size 6GB), the rest - disappeared.
I also had to do fixmbr, so I cannot load Linux (but I don't care).

Anyway, I figured that my FAT is gone, but my data is still there, but unreachable, how can I get it back?

Thanks for any help!

F.

Well, that's what I got:

(wolne miejsce - free space,
zdrowy - healthy).

It doesn't.

Take a screen shot of the entire diskmgmt.msc and post it.

Thanks, the Partition Manager "Undelete Partition..." did the trick, my system is back, praise the Lord.

Win 2k doesn't have such an option, Partition Magic 8 does.
Oh yeah, now I see.
Partiton MAGIC, not MANAGER, sorry Dude.
