rc.sysinit: /fsckoptions and mdadm


Hi all,

I have a problem after I installed a raid1 system on my CentOS 5.3 system.
I wanted to add the raid configuration after I have added a second hard disk. Everything worked fine and a live system like the trinity rescue kit shows that the raid configuration was made successful.
But when I start up my CentOS system it is not able to boot successfully, because the automatic files system check says, that my devices (/dev/sda and /dev/sdb) are busy.
This is true, because they are integrated in my raid array.
So I checked the rc.sysinit and I saw these lines:

if [ -f /fsckoptions ]; then
fsckoptions=`cat /fsckoptions`
fi

and this one:
rm -f /fastboot /fsckoptions /forcefsck /.autofsck /forcequotacheck /halt /poweroff &> /dev/null

So my question is:
How is the file /fsckoptions written? Where can I find the source for writing this file?

When I add fastboot to grub the system boots without the check, but this is not, what I want.

Thanks for your help!

How about manually? Like in 'echo "-v -f -b fsckoptions" > /fsckoptions'.

Depends on the fs you run, say 'man fsck.ext3'.
