Default Need help fixing partition table

I tried to delete a partition using W2K disk management and it looks
like it corrupted the partition table. Disk management said that I
needed to change the partition number of my W2K system partition in
boot.ini, which I did. I had Fedora Linux and W2K installed. Neither one
boots anymore and grub can't find the linux system partition. (Fedora
should be unaffected by boot.ini) Does anyone know of a tool that can
restore partition tables ?

i think your win2k cd can repair this sort of problem insert the cd and boot from it press 'r' on the screen when it asks for a key it will bring you to the repair diagnostics.. type bootcfg /rebuild .... i think it might do it..!
