FC3RC5 is doing something on partition mount

I have a dual boot system, one side is FC3RC5, and the other side is a
mixed debian/morphix/rtai install.
The only shared piece of any disk in the system is /boot, with grub
installed in the MBR.
I do have entries in the FC3RC5 /etc/fstab file that does a cross
mount so that I can move stuff back and forth between its normal;
boot, and booting up the Brain Dead Install (BDI) to run the emc
(electronic machine control, or CNC) program.
The mount operation when FC3RC5 is booted is doing something to the
BDI installs partition that renders it incapable of being checked
with exactly the same version of e2fsck, each one calling itself 1.35
TBE. It reports that this filesystem contains options that are not
supported by this version of e2fsck, and that I should get a newer
one and try again.
The only thing that I have been able to do to get BDI to reboot, is
to put in the cd and reinstall it, meaning it will mke3fs
on /dev/hda5 as it does so. This takes about 2 hours as the machine
and the cd are both getting old and slow like me.
Then it will reboot, and its /etc/fstab then mounts the FC3RC5
partition just fine.
Which of the mount options in the FC3RC5 bootup's fstab do I remove to
prevent this screwing with the other boots data? Or do I have to
remove the FC3's /etc/fstab mount of it entirely, which will be a
pita as the other sides networking isn't just yet.
The /etc/modules.conf link is on the missing list when booted to BDI.
