Automatic FSCK for an ext2 disk

I added a second IDE disk to a FreeBSD system, and formatted it as ext2.  (I 
do have a good reason for doing this).

The system lost power last night.  On reboot, the UFS filesystems were 
repaired automatically, but I had to do a manual fsck on the new disk in 
single-user mode.  

Is there a way to make sure an ext2 filesystem gets automatically fscked as 
well as the UFS partitions on the primary disk?
