My powerbook G4 hard drive started squeaking last night.
Constantly.
There used to be a << spin down hard drive >> command in OS9.
Is there something like that in OS X...?

Make a full backup before your drive dies completely and buy a new one.

Impending bearing failure.

ANY unusual noise from any drive I'm not using as a paperweight would have me running to the local parts store for a replacement. Now. Not tomorrow. Now.
