    Code:
    hdparm -i <device>
    Is your friend here!
    However, be very very carefull with this command.
    Some options could really damage your drive!

    This is an example from my hard drive information
    Code:
    harrier&#58;/proc # hdparm -i /dev/hda
     
    /dev/hda&#58;
     
     Model=FUJITSU MHT2040AT, FwRev=0022, SerialNo=NN7AT491DP4N
     Config=&#123; HardSect NotMFM HdSw>15uSec Fixed DTR>10Mbs &#125;
