Disable Scandisk on startup

Does anyone know how to disable the scandisk tool upon the reboot of a Windows 2000 machine?  I was hoping something can be placed in the "boot.ini" file that tells Windows 2000 Server to NOT RUN this tool regardless.
 
I remember in Win98 there was something about "msdos.sys" and "autoscan=0".  Do you know of a some equivalent to this in Win2000 Server?

Thanks,

When Windows is not shutdown correctly it will perform an AutoCheck using CHKDSK on the next restart. This setting controls the time delay before running Autochk or whether it is run at all.

Open your registry and find or create the key below.

Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called "AutoChkTimeOut" and set it according to the value data below.

Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.

Registry Settings
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager]
Value Name: AutoChkTimeOut
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: Time in Seconds or 0 to disable (default = 10)

Disclaimer: Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. We cannot guarantee that problems resulting from modifications to the registry can be solved. Use the information provided at your own risk.

Thanks CrazyOne!

The BootExecute was needed as well.

Sunray - that link you provided is only good for Win98 - but thanks for trying to help.
