I've just come to install FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE on a new machine.  It's
got four disks in it, but right now I'm only working with one (ad0),
which is a 30GB disk that's been lying about for a bit.  I'm getting:

DEBUG: Scanning disk ad0 for swap partitions
ad0: hard error cmd=read fsbn 0 status=51 error=04
DEBUG: Signal 11 caught!  That's bad!

on the debug console just after I hit okay after defining my slices.
I'm guessing this is a hardware problem (well, the ``hard error'' gives
that away) but does anybody know if this is very serious, or... ?  Can I
work around it, or is the disk for the bin?

  Thanks very much,
