maybe the drive is dieing, I think you need to boot from
a floppy or CD and run fsck on the partition and hope data
is still there.

but it sounds like the drive may be physically damaged.
another option is to go to your SCSI bios and see if it
has any low level analysis tools(adaptec BIOSs have this),
if you can't get fsck working.

first thing is boot to a floppy or CD though.
