I am using the same kernel version as mentioned in the bug listing.  But 
still the problem persists.  Let me know if you find a way out of this 
problem.  I am still googling to find out a solution....

Recovery CD would be better :-(  I dont mount that partition....

think the problem was me trying to create more than 4 primary 
partitions.  I had used GParted to repartition my disk and was able to 
recover the lost space.  Actually I had created the fifth partition for 
swap.  As I could not I was using linux without any swap enabled.  
Thanks to  your information, I had created extended partitions and 
problem solved...:)

Thanks for your help!!
