This is NOT very elegant, but I used two ubuntu scripts: one in the /etc/init.d/ and one in /lib/init.

The issue, if I mounted shares in terminal and forgot to umount them, then the machine would hang and not shut down. I knew this was an issue with earlier 'buntus so I assumed it was the same issue.

Pnethood is a great too for mounting shares, and might solve this issue BUT if I mounted shares that way, the mounted folders were invisible to any applications except file managers and wine programs (how odd, but I get this on two machines running two different puppies.

I modified "umountnfs.sh" slightly as when I ran it, there were was an fstab command in the file, and the file needed to call another one in /lib/init. There is no /lib/init in puppy so I created it.DON'T FORGET TO MAKE THESE TWO FILES EXECUTABLE.

Put this in /etc/init.d and name it umountnfs
#! /bin/sh
# Provides:          umountnfs
# Required-Start:
# Required-Stop:     umountfs
# Should-Stop:       $network $portmap nfs-common
# Default-Start:
# Default-Stop:      0 6
# Short-Description: Unmount all network filesystems except the root fs.
# Description:       Also unmounts all virtual filesystems (proc, devfs,
#                    devpts, usbfs, sysfs) that are not mounted at the
#                    top level.

KERNEL="$(uname -s)"
RELEASE="$(uname -r)"
. /lib/init/vars.sh

. /lib/lsb/init-functions

case "${KERNEL}:${RELEASE}" in
   FLAGS="-f -l"

do_stop () {
   # Write a reboot record to /var/log/wtmp before unmounting
   halt -w

   # Remove bootclean flag files (precaution against symlink attacks)
   rm -f /tmp/.clean /var/lock/.clean /var/run/.clean

   # Make list of points to unmount in reverse order of their creation

   exec 9<&0 </etc/mtab

   while read -r DEV MTPT FSTYPE OPTS REST
      case "$MTPT" in
      case "$FSTYPE" in
         DIRS="$MTPT $DIRS"
         DIRS="$MTPT $DIRS"
      case "$OPTS" in
         DIRS="$MTPT $DIRS"

   exec 0<&9 9<&-

   if [ "$DIRS" ]
      [ "$VERBOSE" = no ] || log_action_begin_msg "Unmounting remote and non-toplevel virtual filesystems"
      umount $FLAGS $DIRS
      [ "$VERBOSE" = no ] || log_action_end_msg $ES

case "$1" in
   # No-op
   echo "Error: argument '$1' not supported" >&2
   exit 3
   echo "Usage: umountnfs.sh [start|stop]" >&2
   exit 3


Then create folder /lib/init and put this file there (call it var.sh):
# Set rcS vars

[ -f /etc/default/rcS ] && . /etc/default/rcS || true

# check for bootoption 'noswap' and do not activate swap
# partitions/files when it is set.
if [ -r /proc/cmdline ] && grep -qw 'noswap' /proc/cmdline ; then

# Accept the same 'quiet' option as the kernel
if [ ! -e /proc/cmdline ] || egrep -qw 'quiet' /proc/cmdline ; then

# But allow both rcS and the kernel options 'quiet' to be overrided
# when INIT_VERBOSE=yes is used as well.

Lastly, call the file in /etc/rc.d/shutdown
I put this near the top of the file, as the first command right after the intro commented lines:
