Resetting SMART

I have a Seagate hard drive that some software reports the 07 seek error
rate and 0A spin retry count are outside of their acceptable range.  I have
tried Seagate's Disk Diagnostics and the program reports the drive is fine.
HD Tuneup says no.  Anyway is there a way to reset the SMART on the hard
drive so I can see if it stays within an acceptable threshhold?  Sometimes
when I start WinXP Pro SP2 I get a bad_pool_call error.  Could this be
related to a seek error rate or spin retry count error?  The drive is not
making any strange noises.

if possible
try another drive and see if your errors go away.

i'm not sure if i'd trust the drive if you get a SMART error
