it should not check it each time. are shuting down your computer right?
and btw everytime is too much but set it to every 20 times.if you are shutting down correct use tune2fs(never used it so man tune2fs) to configure it.

The computer is shuting down right,
When I start it, it doesn't clean the disk but it checks the FAT32 partitions

Make sure your fstab entries for the FAT32 partitions are not set up for fsck. i.e should be.
/dev/hdxy /mnt/... vfat <your options> 0 0

I don't think, here a part of fstab file:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win98 vfat user,exec,dev,suid,rw 1 1
/dev/hda2 /mnt/donnees vfat user,exec,dev,suid,rw 1 1

I have to wait just after the message "FAT32 Support is still ALPHA"
nothing else is writen on the screen during 1 mn, and the disk is running a little.

After this, the computer continue normaly and rapidly with dosfsck 2.8
annabling swap

Should be
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win98 vfat user,exec,dev,suid,rw 0 0
/dev/hda2 /mnt/donnees vfat user,exec,dev,suid,rw 0 0

That will deactivate dosfsck from running.
