How do I stop ubuntu waiting for me to "Press S to skip of C to continue..." when it fails to mount on startup?

I've been having some issues with my RAID setup recently on my headless Ubuntu 10.04 server which means one of my mount requests is failing on bootup. Clearly I need to fix the RAID issue, but this machine is in my loft and having to crawl up there with a keyboard just so I can hit S a few times is extremely irritating.

The exact message is as follows:

The disk drive for /drv/photos is not ready yet or not present

Continue to wait; or Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery

I'd still like Ubuntu to try and mount it, but is there any way to tell it not to wait for the device?
