You would use "tune2fs -i 10m <device>" as in
"tune2fs -i 10m /dev/sda3". But one thing to keep in mind is that 
the check will only happen when the system reboots, so if you reboot 
on the 9th month, and the 11th month, it will run the check on the 
11th month. Setting the check frequency this way does not override 
the other settings, such as the number of mounts, or if hte check 
flag gets set in other ways.

Errors can normally be fixed by e2fsck. But you do not want to try 
to fix a mounted file system.


   Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
