SMART stands for Self Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology and the theory behind it is the drive will tell you when it's going to die.
It's not a 100% perfect diagnosis and a drive that SMART reports as being bad will quite often run for months, possibly years, after the first alert.
On the other hand SMART reports things okay when you can tell from the noises it's making it's clearly worn out.
As to when you want to enable it, an option will be in the BIOS somewhere for it.
