As has already been said, it's extremely difficult to recover an
rmed directory.

If you don't have backups, and the data is _very_ importation, immediately
shut down the OS and turn off the system to avoid overwriting anything.
It's possible that there's still enough data on the disk to reconstruct
everything, but any time you write to the disk you could be destroying

are folks out there with the knowledge to recover a deleted directory,
and there are some HOWTOs floating around the 'net, but it's an involved
and time-consuming process.
