SubjectMassive Corruption

I have a problem with my filesystem, the kernel panics
as soon as it tries to mount the root filesystem.

I guess it is because of the IDE bug in the driver
Russell found, but he (Russell) suggest me to post
my message here.

What I've tried up to now:
% e2fsck -B 4096 /dev/<part>
% e2fsck -B 8192 /dev/<part>
... (16384, 32768, etc.)

% e2fsck -b 4097 /dev/<part>
% e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/<part>
... (16385, 32769, etc.)

The error message I got:
(no matter the argument)
e2fsck 1.18, 11-Nov-1999 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
e2fsck: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/hda6

My (formerly) system:
o Kernel Version: 2.4.0
o Hard Disk: IBM DTTA-351010 (mode=AUTO in the BIOS)
o Architechture: i386

Is there anything I can do in order to recover my
corrupted partition?
Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance.
