How do I configure mandriva to perform auto repair when booting?

Hi! I'm using Mandrival 2005 Limited Edition.

Due to constant power interruptions at our place, I find myself constantly performing force check repair on my linux box during boot time. However, I am only give a 5 second window to do this. Sometimes I miss replying with a 'Y' to the prompt for force check when I am doing something else.

My question is: Is there a way to make the default answer to the prompt for repair to Y (yes)?

Thank you.

It's ok. I've found the solution.

Edit /etc/autofsck file and change the answer from no to yes.

can you not get a small "power supply thingy", 5 min will
be enough to shut down PC or avoid a disaster one day or another,
or filter interruptions
