[ILUG] Can an ILUG guru save me?

The root partition (/dev/hda3) on my laptop
is not longer recognised as a valid filesystem.
(When I run "fsck /dev/hda3" from a rescue CD
I am told "Could not determine filesystem type"
while "e2fsck /dev/hda3" tells me
"The superblock could not be read ...",
and suggests I try an alternative superblock
with "e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/hda3".
However, this brings up the same message.
Is there anything I can do
short of re-installing the system (Fedora-3)?
I thought there were lots of copies of the superblock,
but how does one tell where they are?
I await the wisdom of the ILUG gurus with bated breath.
