partition table invalid or corrupt

Apparently my partition table is either invalid or corrupt, bugger!  I have just returned from overseas to find it like that, and my brother says "it just stopped working".  I can still boot windows by doing :
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
but I can't boot linux.  When I type
geometry (hd0)
i get : drive 0x80: C/H/S=1024/255/63, The number of sectors=39865392,LBA
Partition num: 0, Filesystem type is fat, partition type 0xc
Error : Partition table is invalid or corrupt
From memory the linux partition used to be 0, but I can't really remember.  I definitely installed linux before windows though.
Can anyone help me to boot linux?  Have I lost the partition ??

PS This isn't a grub bug, sorry if it's in the wrong place
