what was the last thing done on the comp? was it erased on startup or during a program? Were you reinstalling something perhaps?

Yes, we'll need a bit more information to attempt to assist. Also, do you have another Mac? Do you have an acquaintance with a Mac? Would it be possible to boot to your iMac in Target Mode to attempt to recover your lost data?

So the OS is still intact? Did it boot as it would have a fresh install? Do you have backups?
