If your system boots after an unclean shutdown you can set it up to do an
autofsck, e.g. an unattended and hands-free fsck. Just go to
/etc/sysconfig/autofsck and change the option from 'no' to 'yes'. The next
time you reboot after an unclean shitdown, for whatever reason, you will be
prompted to say 'Yes to stop autofsck'. If you don't respond it will do an
automatic autofsck.
