Hard drive partition lost??

I am running FC1, with a maxtor 160GB HD installed.  I had just finished 
moving data from an older HD that was making some funny sounds and throwing 
some random errors. All was well.  Last night we lost power for several hours 
and 1 machines UPS/shutdown system didn't power down the workstation. The 
other 7 in our office did fine.  The power was out for several hours.  
Anyway, I now have an unbootable partition with quite bit of unbacked up data 
on it I am trying to recover.  In the past, whenever we would have a disk 
problem I was always able to recover with tomsrt, e2fsck etc.  Sometimes it 
took a little while, but I can't even get started on this one.  During the 
booting of the machine it throws the following errors:

hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hda: dma_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }, LBAsect=90895772, high=5, 
low=7009692, sector=0
end_request: I/O error, dev 03:03 (hda), sector 0
... repeats 10 time
kjournald starting.  Commit interval 5 seconds

I have commented the particular partition out of the fstab file so it isn't 
even trying to mount it. When trying to mount it manually I get the usual:

steve]# mount -t ext3 /dev/hda3 /data
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda3,
       or too many mounted file systems

e2fsck yields the following:
steve]# /sbin/e2fsck /dev/hda3
e2fsck 1.34 (25-Jul-2003)
/sbin/e2fsck: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read 
while trying to open /dev/hda3
Could this be a zero-length partition?

We were set for the disk to mirror to another machine at 3 AM.  It never made 
it.  I really need to get to the data if at all possible.  Any suggestions 
would be much appreciated.
