Was the hard disk IBM by any chance. IBM hard drives are renowned for
their click of death. Nothing to do with Linux. I think it might have
been co-incidence that the harddrive burnt out same time you installed
linux but I am not a hardware expert.

I just bought a new hard drive, and I almost bought an IBM.  I'm really
glad I saw this message first, I ended up buying a Seagate.  Does
anybody else have any recommendations--or warnings--on which
brands of hard drives are good or bad?
