I was reinstalling XP and had my external HD plugged in, so when i said to unpartition it, i accidentally did that drive instead. now everythings gone. are there any programs to get it back? also, can i take it to a store like Best Buy's geeksquad or frys to have them restore it, or is it gone?

    Pretty much you're screwed. If you delete a partition you erase everything on the hardrive. When that happens you have nothing but raw unprocessed space which will have to be refromatted again. There sadly is no way to get anything back so you are going to have to redo evrything again.
