Hello,
    I'm running CentOS 4.4 and am getting an error from smartd. This machine 
has a single ide drive in it /dev/hda and i was getting a bootup error from 
smartd, so i uncommented the /dev/hda line in /etc/smartd.conf. The error 
persisted when i tried to restart smartd, i got a service restart failed and 
the below error. Any suggestions?
    On another unrelated subject i'm looking for an ncftp rpm for CentOS i 
didn't find one in the included repositories.
Thanks.
Dave.
