The sixth field (1) tells that /dev/hda3 (my root partition) _should_ be checked during boot time. A value of 0 would tell it _not_ to check it. With exception of your external drivers and swap partitions, I would let the default values if I was you
1. Will this work for a reiserfs partition, too (e.g., drive needs to be checked, but proper utility is reiserfsck)
2. How do you get it to log the results *verbosely*? I've had trouble finding any indication that a *fsck has been run (save for the world's longest boot time).
