Automating SCANDISK on Hard Reset

I have a Windows 95 machine setup to accept calls for remote access using pcAnywhere.  I have pcAnywhere set to shutdown and restart the computer when the caller logs off.

Problem is, sometimes I get the "I need to run SCANDISK, press any key to continue" message when the computer restarts.  This always happens on a power failure, and sometime happens during a normal logoff/restart.

What I want is to tell this machine to just go ahead and do the SCANDISK thing, automagically fixing any problems it finds.  I know SCANDISK can be told to do things without intervention, but I need to tell the boot process (that detects an improper shutdown) to just go ahead and run SCANDISK.
