[tlug] Badblocks found, now what?

Hi everyone,

I noticed the following dma_intr errors in my system log
and then did a search on google for an explination
(complete list of errors truncated for brevity, but more
of the same):

Oct  5 03:09:32 hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady
SeekComplete Error } 
Oct  5 03:09:32 hda: dma_intr: error=0x40 {
UncorrectableError }, CHS=13542/0/89, sector=3255040 
Oct  5 03:09:32 end_request: I/O error, dev 03:02 (hda),
sector 3255040 

A suggestion found on google was to check the blocks on
the disk with badblocks.  This I have done and turned up 4
bad blocks.  My question is, now what?  Is my disk going
to die?  Is there a way to find out what files are stored
in those bad blocks?  Can I simply mark those blocks as
bad and continue using the drive?

Thanks in advance for the help,
