[CentOS] Retrive data from repartitioned / reformatted hard drive?

The title says it all. One of my clients showed me a 120 GB hard drive 
that his daughter accidentally formatted, according to him. I booted the 
first CD I had at hand - a Slackware 11.0 install CD - and launched 
cdfdisk /dev/hda. cfdisk informed me that there was even no partition 
table. So much for reformatting. cfdisk only shows me 120 GB of free space.

Any way to retrive data on this hard drive? Some magic live distribution 
to read data on repartitioned / reformatted hard drives? any suggestions?
