I have a machine running with FreeBSD-2.0-RELEASE which has been running 
fine as a mail server and is now giving the following errors when I try 
to boot.

wd0a: hard error hard error reading fsbn 52522 of 52512-52527
  (wd0 bnn 52522; cn 52 tn 1 sn)

any suggestions ??  The machine would not boot - just kept on displaying 
this message repeatedly.  I have it running now with an older kernel but 
things like vi wont work just seg fault and dump core.

The machine is a 486dx266 with a 1GB IDE Western digital drive.
Uptime prior to this problem was 83 days.
