resetting S.M.A.R.T. messages?

    I have this Maxtor 53073H4 hard disk (30 GB, 7200 rpm, ATA100). At boot
    time, its SMART system gives me the message: Failure may be imminent.
    Immidiately backup etc. etc.; press F1 to continue booting. However, the
    drive passes the burn-in test of Maxtor's Powermax tool: "This drive is
    certified error free". Now how do I get rid of the SMART message? Is
    there a way to reset the SMART status of the drive?
    Disabling SMART monitoring in the (Asus TUSL2-C) mobo BIOS or switching
    off SMART with the MHDD program (http://mhddsoftware.com) have the same
    effect: the drive stops collecting SMART data, but since the SMART alarm
    status is already set, I still get the message at boot time and have to
    press F1 each time...

    Please advise, any help will be appreciated.

    The message is there because of the bios, check there.

    Well, eh, no. The message is there because the disk has its SMART
    Failure warning flag set. Swithching Smart Monitoring off in the BIOS
    has no effect, as described above...
