 Thanks for your reply!
 
 But my harddrive is a new one which worked for about only four months.
 
 for more detail, it's size is 146GB, and it has only one partition:
 
[nemo@app1 monitor]$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb1             135G   96G   33G  75% /home1
 
 "HARDWARE IMPENDING FAILURE TOO MANY  BLOCK REASSIGNS" what this really mean?

Well, it means what it says. Your second SCSI hard drive, /dev/sdb, is
reporting that it is about to fail. You should replace it before it
actually does fail, and restore your data onto your new drive from your
backups. If you don't have any backups, make one now!

Cheers,

John.
