IDE reboot after power outage problem

My system used to be an all SCSI system. After rare power outages the system
would automatically fsck the disks and boot up.
Recently I added an IDE drive to the system. Now, after power outages the
system boots and when it gets to the ide drive it prompts for single user mode
shell. I drop into single user mode, fsck all the disks so they are marked
clean, and reboot.
Why is the system not automatically fsck'ing the disk on boot, and is there
some setting I need to enable to return to the old desired behavior?
