I just had a few questions regarding an incident that happended a few days ago.
I booted into my SuSE 9.3 Distro and began doing some other things for a while. I came back and found my gnome session to be frozen. I waited a few minutes and tried multiple times to get it to react, but to no avail. I was forced to reboot and on doing so, the computer was unable to detect my hard disk. I was wondering if there is someway I can fix this or if my hard disk is screwed. If it is the latter option I would like to know how it came to be that way and how I can prevent it in the future. I am open to questions and sugguestions. Thanks.
