My wife's Win XP system mysteriously lost its partition table and could 
not boot up anymore. I booted up the Ubuntu 7.04 live CD, downloaded 
gpart and was able to restore the partition table, just enough to backup 
everything over the network.

My only issue is that gpart is not available via apt-get, I had to 
download the binary myself. It's a minor issue, but this software is 
valuable enough to be included in one of the big package repositories.
