How to access fdisk in linux?

Are you sure the XP partition is still there? Have you checked in the Mandrake Control center under "mount points" to see if the XP NTFS partition is intact? Have you tried mounting through Linux to see if the files are still there?
Forgive me if these are dumb questions, or you've already done these things, I just need a better idea of where you are with this before I attempt to help further. Thanks.

You may want to also try downloading and burning the live cd Kanotix, and running QTparted from it. I think there are utilities in there that will let you do some editing on your partitions.
You could also run QTparted from Mandrake if it is installed or installable.
