i just installed 4.9-rel.  after having the system on for about two
hours I got a console message that device ad0 had timed out.  then the
system froze.

after a reboot (power off then on) the systems has been working fine.

The HD is standard seagate barracuda ATA drive (30 gig). I am using
an ata100 cable.

now I'm nervous.  don't know why the drive would have had the error.
Are there any freebsd utils that I can use to test the drive?
