      One Day One Command
      ===================

      hdparm -- Get/Set Hard Disk Parameters.

      Summary:

      hdparm provides a command line interface to various hard disk ioctls
      supported by the stock Linux ATA/IDE device driver subsystem.

      You *MUST* read the man page completely, if you want to do anything
      else, apart from this examples.

      Examples:

      $ hdparm -i /dev/hda -- Display the identification info that was
      obtained from the drive at boot time.

      $ hdparm -I /dev/hda -- Request identification info directly from the
      drive and display in a new expanded format.

      Read: man hdparm

      HTH :)
