Getting Ready

Post by ti.. » Sat, 19 Apr 1997 04:00:00

I have just received a Sun SPARC System from 1989 that used to be
conntected to a network. I wish to load Linux on it for personal use. It
currently has a 100MB hard-drive. Any ideas on what I would need to
do/buy to get up to the point where I can load Linux on my system?




1. HELP: disk getting ready to die??

While running netscape the following was reported on my console:

Aug 23 10:26:20 seti kernel: hda: read_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
Aug 23 10:26:20 seti kernel: hda: read_intr: error=0xff { BadSector UncorrectableError SectorIdNotFound DriveStatusError TrackZeroNotFound AddrMarkNotFound }, LBAsect=1035775, sector=203069
Aug 23 10:26:20 seti kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev 0304, sector 203069
Aug 23 10:26:18 seti last message repeated 2 times

Is my HD getting ready to peg-out, if so can the problem be fixed with
any tools on Linux?

Thanks for any help,
