It sounds like you don't have a hda3 partition anymore. What does the
fdisk -l /dev/hda
If there is no entry for hda3 then I think you might be very lucky as
there is a way you can just reinsert the partition information.
Though you need to get the start and end points from someone else
using a LS with a 250GB drive - that shouldn't be too hard.
