Become root and run "fdisk /dev/hda", then type "p".  That will list
your existing partitions.  Your FAT32 partition is likely still where
it was, undamaged; just note its name (probably /dev/hda1 or
/dev/hda4), and then "mkdir /share", then add an entry in /etc/fstab
to mount it.

None of the ... actors do anything we couldn't do if we looked
like them.
