Bzzt.  This will only turn off periodic fsck.  You shouldn't get an full
fsck on every boot if you are using ext3.  Note that e2fsck still runs,
but it will only say something like "recovering journal, filesystem clean".
This will only take a second or so, unless something is broken.

Tell me, does rh72 have a 2.4.10 kernel?  What does "dumpe2fs -h <dev>" 
say for your filesystems?

Bzzt.  Please read the man page.  You are able to use tune2fs on a mounted
filesystem for a while now.  In fact, for converting your root fs to ext3,
you HAVE to run it on a mounted filesystem.
