Kernel corrupt, check hard disk

Hey there,

Recently Slackware started up with a "CRC Kernel Error", I really don't know what caused it, I installed Tripwire recently, but that's probably unrelated.

Anyways, I was looking for a tool to check if my hard disk is ok. Windows is running fine on dual boot though.

Any ideas what might have caused the kernel corruption? I don't feel like buying a new hard disk for my laptop. :S

Thanks for reading.

From within Knoppix or a similar rescue CD, you can use 'smartctl' to perform S.M.A.R.T. tests on the hard drive.
