Thanks. It's not that bad. Yet. I just know that SMARTD is apparently 
telling me that the drive is failing. I don't have a replacement yet, but 
hopefully I'll have one in the next day or so. Then I have to figure out how 
to get the data to the new drive and make it the boot drive (my boot drive 
is a small PATA drive and it's the one that is failing!)
