Yes.  I also saw Dave's post about smartctl ... I was interrupted this
morning before I had a chance to reply to them.

The short of it is: (Leo) I'm not having problems with the SATA drive
on its own, but it is a Maxtor so I'll check that out; (Dave) I've had
smartd chkconfig'd off since the day after I installed CentOS 4.2
because always gave a FAILED message at boot (said it was unable to
work with the SATA drive).
