May not be lost

You wont be able to read it from the FAT32 Win2000 installation, but since XP is on an NTFS drive the should be readable and accessable from there.
If you have Partition Magic 8 or better (more utilities available for the job too), you can convert the back to FAT32.

May be possible if the drive hasn't been used since

Here is a list of the more popular Data Recovery Software and though not a full list it does cover the more commonly used items.

You need to remember however that any data saved needs to be copied to a different drive to the one being recovered to prevent th Recovered Data Overwriting the Unrecovered Data and destroying it.

Here is a short list of the better ones

While the last 2 are from the same company they are very different products. Win Hex should only be considered foe use by someone who knows Hex Inside Out while Davory is a great cheap General Purpose Application.

Personally I prefer the On Track Option but it's anything but cheap. However because I use this type of software a lot it's paid for itself many times over by now, for a cheaper option Spin Rite from Gibson Research or Stella have both very good reputations by other TR members.
