    Try booting from the Ubuntu live CD again and run sudo fdisk -l ... does it show valid partition information? Something like testdisk may help you out of a spot ... I've used it to recover partition information but not had that much sucess with files.
    How valuable is the data to you?
    When you tried the re-install of Xubuntu how did the partition info get trashed?
