I did this about 6 months ago, so the APIs are likely still good.

comment Can a power loss break an hard disk?
Its probably more likely that the powerloss caused the drives Master Boot Record, or other information that tells the system where various data is to be corrupted. If the data was being modified when the power went out, the data may not be in a consistent state, hence the IO errors. I've heard drives with corrupted MBRs or FATs make strange noises. Unless you can repair the corruption, you're looking at a reinstall anyway, disks are relatively cheap these days, I'd recommend a new disk to be safe.

comment convert home phone wiring to Ethernet
Generally on phone cable, you'll have Red/Green twisted, and Yellow/Black Twisted. My guess is the other pair in the OP's scenario will also be twisted. If I HAD to make this work, I'd probably use R/G as 1&2 and Y/B as 3&6 to eliminate crosstalk as Scott suggested.
