master hared disk s.m.a.r.t backup and replace

Helo sirs,

I use Redhat Linux 9, and when i login last day, i got a message from the boot point that "Master hdd S.M.A.R.T, BAD, backup, replace. What does it mean??

I just formatted and re-installed linux again it looks working good again. I got the above message first time. Let me know whether I have to replace the hdd sata 160GB of my system??

That's what it's saying, a hard drive failure is near. Back up any data you want to keep.
