Change your boot scripts so that all lines that use fsck use now e2fsck
ang give it the additional parameter "-y".
IMHO not a good idea, better change to a journalling FS.

Hmm, why not EXT3?
It's just about compiling support for it into the kernel, running
'tune2fs -j /dev/hdX' once for every partition you have (you can do this
while they are mounted/in use) and changing /etc/fstab. After a reboot
you won't have those problems and you will never have to wait for a fsck
anymore. It's really easy - and absolutley safe.
