    there are programs that will help you recover the data, I don't know the names of them right now. But to give yourself better chances of not having the data written over, turn off the computer until you have the software.

    Data Rescue II

    If you can stop using your internal drive straight away, the more you use it the less likely you are to salvage the files.

    Do you have a bootable clone (i.e. not time machine)?

    Turn it off until you get the data recovery dvd, and start up using the dvd. Anything you do with your HD prior to recovery could erase some of your data.
