protecting HD from overheat
The following practices are useful to prevent overheating
HD sudden death;
0. check to see HD temparature
# /sbin/atactl wd0 smart status
1. run ventilating fan faster
# echo -n ']]' >/dev/satmgr (double ]] is known ok)
2. instruct HD to make power saving
my /etc/rc.local has;
/sbin/atactl wd0 setidle 120
root fs is mounted with nodevmtime, and postfix=NO.
3. having 5400rpm 2.5" IDE/SATA inside brings much
better condition; less heat and shorter spin-up delay;
200MHz PPC is not capable of exceeding the max.
of IDE disk xfer rate nor 100M Ether pipe, it'd be forgiven
to have slower disk in general.
