Actually, quick follow up question.  If any, where should I see soft errors,
or hard errors reported?  I am on a stock redhat 7.2 install.

Do I need to log anything extra, or install something, etc?  I don't believe
that I have any errors in /var/log/messages?

Is it feasible that the hard errors I noted *could* have been caused by a
hard freeze on a machine running ext3.  Partial writes, etc?  Perhaps the
disk isn't failing?
