now that i am done ranting. i have a question. I
received this error today and i think it was today
only so far, but the error is as follows. 

hda: drive_cmd: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete
Error }
hda: drive_cmd: error=0x04Aborted Command

i did some googling and found some stuff...but some
said go out and get another drive this one is going to
hard drive heaven very soon... and other said it could
be a software doing this and keep an eye on it. then i
saw some say about a program called smartctl. is this
a program that centos has...if not what is it and
where is a good place to get it and is it worth
running it?

i am running centos 3.5 120gig maxtor. with a 1.8
intel cpu 512 mem.


"On the side of the software box, in the 'System Requirements' section, it said 'Requires Windows or better'. So I installed Linux."
