I'm guessing you have a traditional debian-style harddrive install.
Do you have "nofstab" as a boot option?
If both of these are "yes", then you can (or should be able to?) prevent the check even if the drive is mounted by editing /etc/fstab
Each line in fstab should end with two single-digit numbers. If the second of these two numbers is either zero or doesn't exist, then the associated partition should not be checked automatically.
It is not a good idea, especially if your partition is ext2/3 or some even older format, to assume that you will have no troubles and not ever check them. Your file system should still be checked on a fairly regular basis, say once or twice a month, or you may find yourself losing important data.
