Check out the excellent STS-107 FAQ put together by the folks on
sci.space.shuttle. This topic is addressed under "Didn't STS-87 
have a tile impact problem?" The FAQ also addresses many other
common questions, such as "Why didn't they do a spacewalk to 
inspect the underside?"

Here's the info:

The STS-107 Columbia Loss FAQ can be found
