HAHA indeed!, lately I noticed a very faint beeping in one of our
computers.... during read/write one HD led was not blinking, so we
assumed the HD is bad... and so it was... the only reason it got heard
was because it was friday evening... 

In my case it was a Promise IDE Raid Controller, I assume 3Ware and ICP
are better... I do have an ICP at home under linux, where I can read the
status out of /proc... if you don't have one handy, I'll boot the
maschine with a openbsd cd, maybe syslog reports something :)
