harddisk diagnostic tool

Can somebody help me?

I'm running Fedora Core 1 on a PII 350Mhz with 128 Mb RAM, dual boot system Linux/Win98SE.

Are there disk-diagnosing utilities for Linux, like there is "Scandisk" in a Windows/DOS environment?
I'm having troubles running Fedora, and I guess some of them are caused by a bad condition of the hard disk.
(120 GB, 80 GB Windows-partition (FAT32), 40 GB Linux)

Thanks in advance!
