Someone recently mentioned gpart.
Gpart is a tool which tries to guess the primary partition table of a
PC-type hard disk in case the primary partition table in sector 0 is
damaged, incorrect, or deleted. The guessed table can be written to a
file or device. Supported (guessable) filesystem or partition types:
DOS/Windows FAT (FAT 12/16/32)
Linux swap partitions versions 0 and 1 (Linux >= v2.2.X)
Linux LVM physical volume module (LVM by Heinz Mauelshagen)
I haven't needed it yet though.
