fsck on redhat boot

Hello Everyone!

I have a problem with one of my redhat boxes. I am HP-UX technician and so redhat is kind of new for me. Here is my question.

Is there any way to boot the system with out having fsck run? I have two bad drives and the boot keeps hanging on the fsck. If I can get the system back up I may be able to fix the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Boot the box.

Intervene on the console at the Rh screen before it boots.

go down to the kernel line and press m to modify.

maybe its e to edit

add single to the kernel line then press b to boot.

You will boot into single user mode.

Now run the fsck yourself or fix what you think the problem is.
