Partitiontable deleted with parted

Hi there!

I know, it is mostly not your fault that I deleted my partition table, but I 
guess you are the
best source to ask for help...

I tried to install the current Knoppix (Debian Linux) Version 3.4 on my company 
laptop. I had some 
difficulties with removing a former BSD partition and in the end all I could 
do, was a (I don't
remember the exact phrases) complete "overwrite" of the partition table. OK, I 
got a warning, but
it was not very alarming to me, since I see such warnings all day.

But this time, it made "whoops" and my complete partition table was gone.

The tool I used was qt-parted.

I need my data urgently back. The first two partitions were from Win XP, one 
swap partition
and one from *BSD. - I need only the Win partitions back. The rest was for 
playing around. But
the Win XP stuff I need for my company. If I can't get this dang thing to boot, 
I guess I
may get into severe troubles...

When I turn on the computer, right now, It comes up with the BSD boot-loader, 
but there are no
informations about the partitions any more, so it doesn't boot any more.

I also don't know the partition sizes exactly, since I didn't do the original 

Can anybody help me, please?

Best regards!
