Harddrive Warning Message

    On boot up, I'm getting a Text Warning Message (while still in the DOS
    environment) that says my Harddrive may fail. It says to backup my date on
    my slave drive due to failure that may happen. Then I have to press F1 to
    continue and boot.

    Specifically:
    It's the drive S.M.A.R.T. system informing me that trouble is heading my
    way.

    So I ran Norton Disk Doctor that found nothing. I've defragged everything
    with no issues.

    How do I know that this message is correct?
    What do I do?
