    Recovering data from hard drive

    I need help....

    I decieded to give linux another try. So I started to reszie my hard drive so I can dual boot XP and linux. I was stupid and didn't back up my data. So as Partition magic was resizing the dirve, an error occured and tried to reboot the system. It wouldn't boot up. So I bought a enclosure and tried to open the drive in linux, ubuntu. But I wasn;t able to mount the drive. It was suggested to try dmesg | tail. I run the following commad and get:
    Code:
    tb@tb-laptop:~$ dmesg | tail
    [17182011.928000] sd 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi disk sdb
    [17182011.928000] sd 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 0

    I'm using a Maddog multimedia 2.5" enclosure.
    I really need to recover the data on this drive. Please advise.

    I run fdisk -l
    Code:
    tb@tb-laptop:~$ fdisk -l
    
    Disk /dev/sdb: 100.0 GB, 100030242816 bytes
