If Disk Utility did not see the drive sounds like it has gone to heaven. And sure looks like you have lost that data. Try installing a new drive, install old drive in an external caddy and download the demo version of Data Rescue 3 and see if there is any joy.

And you can use the external caddy and another drive to backup regularly so you don't get caught out again. Be assured ALL hard drives will fail as they are mechanical devices.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
