Howto force fsck after dirty shutdown?


How can I have a Linux system force a filesystem check after an improper shutdown? My current distro merely prompts interactively, which doesn't help much if I'm not at the system when it goes down (i.e. power failure). Any pointers?

Thanks,
-AT

P.S. - I'm running an EXT3 filesystem on everything but my swap.

The file /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit has a section of forcefsck options. You might take a look there.
