More snips...

Because it is seen as 'improper shutdown or it still being in use', I
would suspect that it is in use rather than improper shutdown.  If it
was a shutdown problem the live cd would probably give you the same
message becuase it too would detect the improper shutdown.  This leads
to the conclusion that the drive must be seen as in use.  Something must
be trying to mount or access that drive and so stopping it from being
mounted.  What does your mount command show ?  The drive may already be
mounted just not where you expect it to be.
