Just because A came before B doesn't necessarily mean B caused A.  An OS
install is a very good stress test for a hard drive/IDE subsystem and it
sounds like yours must've been ready to croak.  If a drive is going to
fail, it's statistically more likely to fail in the first month or so of
use... I've seen this happen countless times with new RAID arrays.  We
never put them into production without a good shakedown period first.
