Remapping bad sectors
Is it possible to automatically remap bad sectors when they are encountered? Or even better, to format the drive with, say, ext3 and scan for bad sectors and mark them as inacessible?
Now, to throw a spanner in the works; is it possible to do this when I have 2 hard drives set up in software RAID 1, and only one of the drives has a few bad sectors? The drive isn't failing, and has had the same bad sectors for a few years already.
I've tried to zero the drive a few times already, but it still has the same bad sectors. I'm not particularly worried about data loss, and my wanting to use RAID is just for convenience sake.

The -c option.
