Drive Failure, Macintosh HD replaced by disk0s2 in Utility manager

First off, the title should read "Failure" not "Falure"... sorry about that!
I have an iMac 27 inch and I think it failed quite badly tonight. It started being slow when I was trying to save a photo from a webpage. I forced Firefox to quit, it went fine. Then turned Firefox on again and it froze again. Restarted the computer and there was this flashing Folder icon with a question mark on it...
I did all the stuff, restarted while pressing the option key, put the install DVD and restarted while pressing C, and when I got to the utility manager I couldn't see "Macintosh HD" anymore, just a SATA hard drive with a sub-drive named "disk0s2".
I tried to repair the drive, but it says it's corrupt and cannot be repaired.
I know hat Apple issued a warning concerning these computers saying that the hard drive needed to be replaced, bu I didn't do it. And I don't do enough backups, and I know it's dumb, so plase spare an comments on that
Now what? Is it definately failed? Is there any way that I can recover some stuff from it?
