thanks to everyone who replied to this thread.

i was able to rescue the data by using fdisk in linux to re-create the
partition map (which appeared to have been erased!) based on what i
remembered. after creating the partition map, and setting the single
partition to ntfs, i was able to mount the partition and copy the files!!

everyone in the lab says "THANK YOU" !
