Partitioning Problems

I made a huge mistake...I created a linux partition on my D:\ drive with partition magic and started the installation of openLinux2.3.  During the installation I chose expert when selecting Installation Target.  I chose /dev/hdb1 to boot to and it set aside 1024 cylinders for the install.  It formatted it and now when booting back to windows I have no D:\ drive.  What do I do?  I have a lot of stuff on that drive.  Can I reclaim that space, because Linux did not use all of the drive and Windows acts like all of my stuff is still there it just can't access it.  Help...

Sorry, you have just overwritten a part of your partition, only reason that it still shows files is because one of the fat/vfat copies (first and last on a win partition) is still intact.

There is a reason why the manual of pqmagic states "Backup before you manipulate partitions"
