Hard disk trouble?

My (just on topic) Sun 386i seems to have died. I could hear the hard
drive seeking continuously so I tried to login as root to shut it down and
it hung. I stopped it with L1 + A and then rebooted. part way through the
boot process it simply scrolled the following error message:

sd2a: read retry blk 6728 (abs blk 6728)
      sense key (0x04): hardware error error code (0x09): servo error

[repeated 3 times]

sd2: rezero failed

Does this mean that the hard drive ( the standard CDC Wren IV 340Mb ) has
finally turned up its toes?
