Checking for Bad sectors


OK, i have this computer that has bad sectors reported in windows, we are going to use DBAN to clean the drive and install Slackware. In slackware 10.2, we then want to monitor any Bad Sectors found and to generally check if any disk errors are starting to show like you can do in CHKDSK in windows. (Using SATA drives)

cheers, rotty
