Question Using linux as a hard drive test station


I am trying to configure a standard pc as a hard drive test station, what i need to be able to do for throughput reasons is test for bad sectors on at least seven hard drives at the same time.

is there any linux programs i can use to test multiple hard drives at the same time for bad sectors ?

another requirement i needed to forfill is wiping all the drives and leaving just 0's on the tracks. i found DBAN and this program rocks! it wipes all seven hard drives at the same time!!!!!!!!!!!
