lost textures on saved projects

I just spent six hours-plus two days ago adding textures to my latest project, and today when I returned to it, almost all of my textures are gone! This isn't the first time it's happened to me, and it's really getting frustrating! I save my work constantly, and double check everything before I shut down. Any help out there?!

What version of blender are you using?
Did you pack your textures into the blend?

I'm using version 2.49. I found the 'pack' icon, but finding viable information on the proper usage of it is nowhere to be found. Any help?!

If the Texture datablocks are not used, they will not be there when the file is saved and reloaded. Save/Reload is Blender's method of garbage collecting.

You can create a 'fake' user with the F button in the Texture Buttons window (F6)
