Alex, I think I've gone completely back to newbie-land. I don't know
where to continue from here with smart. I think that I remember a post
where there was mention of another disk checking utility but STFA
didn't help much- probably because I don't remember the command name!
So I googled for linux commands, but pages like
http://www.ss64.com/bash/ didn't have a command for checking to disks.
Also, there was still no man for smart:

[root localhost ~]# smartctl -t long /dev/hdb
smartctl version 5.33 [i386-redhat-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-4 Bruce Allen
Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/

SMART support is: Unavailable - Packet Interface Devices [this device:
CD/DVD] don't support ATA SMART
A mandatory SMART command failed: exiting. To continue, add one or
more '-T permissive' options.
[root localhost ~]# man smart
No manual entry for smart
[root localhost ~]#
