Configuartion problem


When linux starts, sometimes, I can see the following message:

"/ has been mounted 20 times without being checked, check forced."

Then fsck is take control for a long time to check the file system. This is very time wasting. Can the frequency of checking be changed such as 20 times to 200 times or just turn it off?

Another problem is the Ram Disk configuartion. I need a ramdisk for temp file storage. The ramdisk.txt tell me use the following command to create ramdisk:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ram0 bs=1k count=2048
mke2fs -vm0 /dev/ram0 2048

and mount it.

How can this can be automatically created. I want to add the mount option in the fstab.conf. How to run the above command before fstab is loaded?

tune2fs is the command your looking for... and you can also edit your fstab to not have fsck enabled, but checking every so often is quite good.
