You can try to recover them with mc. (Midnight Commander) It has an 
option to undelete files when run as root. The hard part is that the 
file names are lost, so you will have to check on the files to make 
sure you have the correct ones.

One other thing - you should remount the partition as an ext2 file 
system before trying any file recovery.

Good luck,
