	if you run 'du' in your lost+found directory what does it report?
	Its quite possible that you have all your files in there - possibly
	with many filenames converted into #<inode_number>, but with the
	contents ok. (Hopefully you will just have lost the names of the
	higher levl directories - ie usr/X11R6 is now lost+found/#23412,
	but usr/X11R6/bin/* is lost+found/#23412/bin/*... ymWv)
