That would involve quite a fun mod to do to your computer. I'll check that program out, but it'd be possible to run a wire into the mobo where it does the HD activity LED on your case. I prefer hardwired solutions They're more fun.

The program worked but annoyed the snot out of me, it also makes a tray icon which I hate :-P And also its windows not linux :-P

#sh HdLed.sh &>/dev/null &
