Usually the standard location for data is /var/lib/pgsql/data for 
postgresql 8.
So try to restore this directory first and underneath.

Only with that you can hopefully restore the whole system assuming that 
if tablespaces were creates are under the standard location.

I would ask others to make sure there are no backups, sometimes there is 
guy who knows...

Good luck
