You have to turn off fsck manually, as you can also read in the
documentation at [1]:

| So it is a good idea to turn this feature off for ext3.  Use the command

| tune2fs -i 0 -c 0 /dev/hdxx To disable the checking.

Note: *NEVER* use the tune2fs-command on mounted filesystems! You have
to do the settings within' the RH-Rescue-System!
