    Default Hardware Diagnosis Tools

    I have Suse 10.3 still and I am having an occasional S.M.A.R.T. message that says my HARD Drive is failing. Is there a hardware tool for Suse 10.3 that I can run to absolutely ruleout whether the disk is failing or whether I have a software conflict going on. I have a dual-boot now, but I want to see about removing the XP side and put everything on the Linux side and use Crossover for running Windows applications.

    Best bet would be to boot to the diagnostic disk of the hard drive
    manufacturer and see what it says.
