well, does ext2fsck do anything? if not, i guess you can only use the
"usual undelete attempts" via "cat /dev/hdb2 | strings" or feed google
with "ext2 undelete" - there are some win32 GUI tools out there, which
were able to recover lots of data from a ext3 crash we had here.

make bzImage, not war
