Seems like the "/" directory has been trashed and the inode still
in the bitmap. Can you get the / and /lost+found directory file by:

debugfs /dev/hda_problem_disk
dump . /tmp/rootdir
dump lost+found /tmp/lostandfound

then this two files some where I can download? If it is small (<30K),
you can send it to me on email also. I think it should be small.

If you can use e2image and make a meta data image of the partition
put it some where that will also be useful.
