Linux prompts you to run interactive startup when it boots (at least RedHat), I don't have Fedora to check.
When booting you may see something like 'Press 'I' to enter interactive startup', then press 'I'
and when it asks you about 'smartd', answer 'N'.

Then you remove rc.d script that launches smartd ...

BIOS has nothing common with your problem.

On my RH EL4 this startup script is located here: /etc/rc.d/rc{2,3,4,5}.d/S40smartd
To stop running it on boot that's enough to rename it to 's40smartd' in the same directory.

Or even better (without renaming), just run:  chkconfig --levels 2345 smartd off
