Can I remove checkfs from boot level
With this new gentoo rc there is these notion of critical services. These services cannot be removed from the boot runlevel. Now checkfs is a critical service. And it takes unusually long time for my windows drive to get checked (it is huge in size) so I decided to remove checkfs from critical runlevel. I am no expert on this field so I would like to get your opinion on this:
Is it safe to remove checkfs from boot runlevel?
Thanks for any help in advance.

i wouldn't remove checkfs but you can configure fstab to make it so that your windows partition does not automout at boot therefore I'm pretty sure no checkfs.
just add the noauto option in /etc/fstab under your windows entry. Think this should work for you.
you should also check out /etc/conf.d/rc file as many things have changed recently with startups as you already know.

Rebooted my comp only today and noticed that it checks all filesystems. Even those with noauto. Do you have any suggestions how I can atleast remove my windows C: filesystem (it is very huge drive and just too much of time is wasted in checking that filesystem).
Thanks in advance.

set defaults values to 0 0 instead of 1 1 in /etc/fstab.
