    Hmmm....if you have a hard drive enclosure or can get your hands on one then use that and see if you can access your data through someone else's computer.

    Use that method just to protect your important files (if possible) but basically you just need to get some professional advice. Take it to your nearest store and see what they can do to help.

    boot the computer off of an external HD -- install leopard on one if you havent already. Once you have booted it you can see if the hard drive mounts.

    as long as the hd mounts fine you can get all your data no problem. if the hd wont mount -- you are kinda screwed. sure reinstalling everything is going to ruin your day, but its far better than losing data.
