is it ok to disable the complete fsck for every startup?

I don't have the answer to that, and this is the only version of Linux I have 
run where this has happened.

	When I did the original install, when Hardy first came out, it would only 
check /root on every startup, and do a complete scan at some set interval..  
After one of the updates, it started checking all the directories and slowed 
the boot up down considerably.
	The machine is started once a day, every day, and is on for 16 hours.  I have 
orders from she who must be obeyed, that I am not to change, update, or in 
any way modify this machine.
