Dead debian install - how to disable fsck?


Hi folks,

I have a file server that will no longer boot. It has a few RAID controllers in it, and after a power cycle, it comes up and throws the usual "xxx days since last check, forcing fsck". However at that point, there is no progress bar, no status, nothing - the machine just sits there indefinitely. I know there are ways to disable the fsck from the filesystem once it's up, but I can't get the machine to boot at all right now to make any changes.

I'm running Debian 5.0. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Does it do an fsck if you boot into single user mode (i.e. maintenance mode)?
