Yes, fsck is still fsck'ing all the partitions upon a power outage

fsck is still fscking 20 gigs of drives taking 10 mins or more. 

My init script is the stock rc and rc.sysinit from RedHat 6.1, my bash
skills are elementary at best, I'm a user and not a coder. But I read
everything I can find relevant to what I'm doing at the time and normally
get it working.
