	The stock /etc/rc that called when the machine boots up writes
the output of the fsck(1M) to the hard disk (/etc/.lastfsck).  This is
definitely a problem.  Many people prefer having control over what
fsck does rather than running fsck with the "-y" option and having it
do all the work.  A lot of times fsck will delete files or clear them
and you have no control over what it's doing.

	Check out the fsokay.cpio.Z package on OSU, it contains some
enhanced /etc/rc scripts and tools to make the booting phase of the
UNIX PC a lot cleaner and more reliable.
