I´m getting this message in the POST :
Smart Failure Predicted on Hard disk 0: IC25N040......
WARNING: immediately back up your data and replace your hard disk drive. Failure may be imminent.
I´ve been backing up my stuff tonight and I´m f...king scared that this might be some permanent failure.
I noticed this happend when I was trying to install Norton Antivirus 2004 with out a luck and then I´m trying to but 2003 back on and still with out a luck due to the fact the computer is lagging heavyly.
Pls bring some feedback on this matter ASAP.

You are doing the right thing in ensuring that all your data is backed up. Also ensure that the backup files can be read!
Sounds silly I know, but I have encountered a case like this where all the backups were taken, and none of them could be read!
