FSCK On Restart

How do I stop RedHat Linux 9 from doing a start when rebooting the machine. Current, it is set to do it every 20 reboots and my raid drive takes 23 hours to do a fsck.

Or view the man page here:

edit /etc/fstab:
find the line that refers to your drive, for example:

/dev/hdb2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1

change the last value to 0

`man fstab` to find out why
