Application to Control Hard Drive Speed


Are there any linux applications that will allow me to adjust the hard drive rotational speeds? I've used similiar programs for windows before but now I am running a linux setup.

Thanks for the reply. I downloaded the package and read the man page but I don't see anything about changing a hard drive rotational rpm speed. Did I miss something?

Also is there a GUI app that does something like I want? I'm more comfortable with a GUI based app.

Thanks.
