Hda error on debian

Hi, i've got an hda error very often, especially when I use GCC or when I load files :
debian kernel: hda: read_intr: error=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
debian kernel: hda: read_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }, LBAsect=2826301, sector=2632760
debian kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev 03:02 (hda),sector 2632760

What is it? What can I do?

Sounds like you may have some badblocks on your HD. You can double check by running fsck on it. ie:
fsck /dev/hda
Should report and hopefully correct any probs. Read man fsck for more info. Check out man badblocks too. Of course I may be wrong, those error messages are always so cryptic.
