I think Ubuntu will automatically unmount "remaining filesystems." So, my answer would be no.

the reason i asked is that sometime(only sometime) my ubuntu will do a check disk on my flash card during bootup ... but with your response i believe its a confirmation that ubuntu will umount "remaining file system" ... i think i dont have to worry much about it , thanks ...


since i'm here , i got a few more things need to confirm with you guys ...

theres some "services" in my rc*.d directories which i never seen before ... what if i disable them , will that affect the general working of my ubuntu system , especialy if i go into gnome desktop ::

eg :: festival , hotket-setup , hplip , laptop-mode , rsync , mdadm , nvidia-kernel and bluez-utils ...

Well, here is what I know about them:

fesitval - a speech synthesizer, so I would turn it off
hotkey-setup - if you are using a laptop, I'd leave this one enabled; it allows the computer to automatically detect any "special" keys on your keyboard, like sound and wifi controls and implement their behavor (this is one thing I had originally missed from Windows, so if it works, then great)
hplip - support for hp printers, so if you don't need it, turn it off
rsync - a file copy deamon which you probably won't need
mdadm - a software raid which I'm almost certain you don't have
bluez-utils - software/firmware for bluetooth equipment, you can probably turn it off

I'm not exactly what laptop-does, but if you're using a laptop, then I'd probably leave it on (probably has something to do with power-saving features). I'm also not sure what the nvidia kernel is, but if you don't have an nvidia video card, then you shouldn't be able to take adavantage of it anyways.

Sorry, but I don't have a clue. I'm guessing it would be somewhere in the kernel config if it was even possible to control.
