hmmm, that's an interesting option. but the problem for me is that
it's not that i don't want to run fsck at all -- and i don't know
whether i will want to run it until i start the machine up. as i
mentioned in an earlier message, i have no problem w/ running fsck,
it's just that sometimes i'd like to skip it.

i don't think this is how i want to handle it. i really think that it
should be possible for the system to be configured so that at
boot time the user should be able to choose whether to skip fsck-ing.
thanks for your thoughts!
