Invalid partition table

I was rsync'ing some data to one of my production boxes and all of a
sudden I lost my connection. On the console, a message stating 'Invalid
partition table'.

I attempted to boot from floppy and use fixit, but when trying to mount, I
get either operation not permitted, or invalid super block. I have tried:

# mount /dev/ad0 /mnt
# mount /dev/ad0s1 /mnt
# mount /dev/ad0s1a /mnt

The first 2 exist, the latter does not. I have most of my development on
this box, and the last tape backup was last night. I have about 5 hours
worth of new development that will be lost in the event I can not at least
pull data from the box. (All CVS)

Please help point me in the right direction to get this box back in usable

Tks very much.
