Help ive been really stupid!

I was trying to create some space on the drive, and i used partition magic
to delete a partition i didnt recognize. It was only a small (7-8 MB)
partition and im fairly sure that ity ws set to active. I am also sure that
there was more than one active partition on this disk, but everything that i
have read tells me that this cant be true. Now whe i boot my computer up it
trys to boot IDE-0 the drive but fails and comes up with the error message
"Cannot find NTLDR"
Can anyone help?
What have i done and how can i undo it as i have data that i'd rather not
lose?


My specifications

Win XP pro
AMD 1400 processor
256MB ram
80 Gb hard drive
GForce 3 128mb
