When #2 is finnished using the machine, he does a logout, and the machine reboots, he then turns the power off, and when restarting it all the partitions has to be cheched because they weren´t cleanly unmounted. How to I make #2 able to cleanly unmount?

In my opinion the simplest way to resolve this problem is to
modify /etc/inittab standard line
# What to do when CTRL-ALT-DEL is pressed.
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -h now
In this situation (the best in home use) everybody can easly shut
down corretly the system by simple CTRL-ALT-DEL :-).
In KDE it is possible, using kdm, configure the simple user allow shut
down the system. If I remember in wdm it is possible also.
