Alright I'm glad you all have got it fixed however I am not seeing this as a widespread problem. I did a brand new install of bt3 on a clean hard disk and in vmware and it worked perfectly both times using the reiserfs file system which is what i prefer.
do you think its bad that I'm using the rc.6 file from backtrack 2 to fix my problem?
becouse with the rc.6 from bt2 my shutdown and reboot work fine now
Did anyone try my proposed fix here?

It's almost the same as "uncommenting killall lines" w0wza used, but it first tries to unmount fuse mounted file systems.
We pretty much proved the fix is using the correct file system.
I installed bt3 in vmware workstation using the tut found somewhere on this forum. It worked great, but I am also having this unmounted cleanly problem. Just to clarify, do I just uncomment these lines?
# /sbin/killall5 -15
# /bin/sleep 5
# sbin/killall5 -9
Didn't wanna mess with this file without knowing for sure...
I never tried that fix because as we clearly stated using the reiserfs file system there is no issue. Also if you'll note in the dual boot video thats what mut's the core developer of backtrack likes to use. HHmmm.........Now what should I use?

To clarify for anyone else installing or using this vmware workstation install tut -
Simply change mkfs.ext2 /dev/sda1 to mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1
NP.It may work. I'm not saying it does't. I'm simply offering what I did with no errors and the rest is my opinion. Take it or leave it.
I also am having the same problem of the checking the filesystem everytime that i boot into BT3b. I am using ext2 atm. Another problem that i think is related is that when i try and use the file browser to go to my bt3 partition it gives me a very long error (if needed i will copy it down), and doesnt let me view it or mount it. Will that rc.6 solution work for this also?
