Boot into the livecd and search thru synaptic for a application for recovery on the drive. Make sure you have a internet connection the server though.

Im not sure if you can mount a partition without a partition table but if you can;
Just boot from a live cd, mount the partition and copy all of your data to a usb key.

Have you tried testdisk? This link has a step by step to recover the partition table (see example under heading 2): http://www.howtoforge.com/data_recovery_with_testdisk

(I offer no guarantees as I haven't used it)

Should work fine, used it before. Pretty nifty tool.
