    so i just set up a new external hd (seagate barracuda pata/100) on monday, and today, for a moment, it stopped spinning while i wasn't actively using it. but when i accessed a file on it, it started right back up. is that normal? or is this a prelude to something worse?

    Normal. No reason to keep it running if it's not being used.
