Is there any way to avoid the system going to single user mode when a 
secondary storage device cannot be mounted?.

I mean, if all system filesystems are OK, how can set up a device with a 
custom mount point so that when it's tried to mount at boot time and 
fails doesn't cause the system to be in single user mode?

I know that if in fstab I set the last parameter to "0" checking will 
not be made at boot time, but instead what I want is the check to be 
run, correct any automatically correctable error, and continue booting 
anyway, despite the result of the check.Later a custom script will check 
the filesystem and send a mail, for example.

Thanks for your help.
