And then the drive goes

The latest bit of fun is the 40G drive (that was in the computer that went poof and is probably over 5 years old) is now dying/dead.

Servo failure? nice.

Oh? now smart commands don't even work?

# tail /var/log/messages-bash: /usr/bin/tail: Input/output error

Oh - and I can't access some files on the filesystem. I guess this drive is dead.
