PowerMac G5 HD making wierd noises

My PM G5's Hard Drive has been making wierd noises lately and I'm really beginning to worry that it's failing. How can I be sure?

I am not here to do what has already been done!

Check the SMART status in Disk Utility and verify it while you're there. Keep everything backed up and ensure there's at least 8GB free if it's your boot drive.
Some things are better mad...
