I guess you say that you used bffs to junk your partition... i'm afraid i can't
give you a real advice, just the right way for revocery:
the usual way is to do a 'newfs -N' to not format the drive ubt only get the
locations of the superblock, of which you feed one to 'fsck -b' then. Using 32
blindly seems a bit like guessing to me...
After i did that, i got a lost+found too, which contained most of the stuff
i've lost, but i didn't get one thine: /usr/. (or /usr/..) directory entry,
can't remember exacylt. Due to that, i decided to backup what i had, do a full
newfs and then restore the tape backup.
