Help !

I have had some mess with my diskcontroller. It has been replaced, and
now it works fine. Meanwhile, my linux-partition (ext2) has become

I can boot from floppy, and try e2fsck (version 0.5a), but it just says:

   Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/hda3
   Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock

I found an option for using copies of the superblock, so I tried

e2fsck -f -b 8193
e2fsck -f -b 16385
e2fsck -f -b 24577
e2fsck -f -b 32769

and now the reply is

   Block bitmap 0 for group 0 not in group.

with no further action. Apparently it finds the superblock-copy,
but where do I go from here ?

Any hints, anyone ?  It would be nice not having to reinstall
everything from scratch....

1. How to convert "Red/Green/Blue" to "Red/Yellow/Blue" color mix

Anyone knows how to convert Red/Green/Blue (i.e. prime color of light)
to Red/Yellow/Blue (.e. prime color for paint materials and printer's
ink) ?

I want to write a painter program that allow user to mix color of Red,
Yellow, Blue.  The conversion routine is necessary.
