preventing fsck failed hit ctrl-d to continue prompt

Hi there. Is there a way for fedora to do an fsck -y /dev/sdax if its needed at boot time, but not die if the fsck fails? That is, I would like the machine to come up every time, without interventions.

Many thanks, -t

first of all, if the fsck fails that could indicate a problem, i would hit ctl-d, and run
# fsck -f /
and let it run to try and fix the problem, but yes, you could edit the line in /etc/fstab that references the mount point / and change the last numbers to 0 0 to skip the fsck, though this isn't recommended since there is a reason why the system runs fsck periodically.
