If you have not formatted any of the new partitions AND you know the exact previous layout, you can reconstruct partition table as it was using Linux fdisk.  Make sure to assign the correct partition types (4 if partition <32 Mb, 6 if >32 Mb, b for Win95 FAT32...).

This is NOT 100% guarenteed to work, but I have gotten back some partitions this way.
