Simple, don't use disk destroyer, its busted.  I had a heck of a time when I 
installed F10, and f10 was slow as a drugged 3 legged dog.  Stable for the 
most part but slow.  The I started getting problem reports from smartd about 
that disk.  So I went and got another disk, and used gparted to prepare it as 
I wanted it to be, with a few more partitions etc with the sizing based on 
previous experience.  I labeled them all, put ext3 journals on them, and 
rsync'ed them from the failing disk, and did a grub install on the new disk 
and fixed /etc/fstab to use label mounts as the last thing I did before a 
shutdown to remove the failing disk and move the new one to the sata0 jack.  
I had to do a boot from the install dvd in rescue mode and do the grub 
install again for some reason.  But when I had rebooted from the dvd to the 
new disk, the first thing I noticed was a very obviously noticeable speedup 
of the system even from the boot verbosity, and now, nearly a year later, 
that speedup remains.

But its blasphemous to pan disk destroyer in these here parts, so I keep 
quiet about it most of the time.
