I'm trying to dual boot arch and backtrack but I'm getting an error:
:: Starting udevd... done :: Running hook [udev] :: Triggering uevents...done. /dev/sda3 looks like swapspace - not mounted mount: you must specify the file system type You are now being dropped into an emergency shell. sh: can't access tty: job control turned off [ramfs/]#
Arch works fine by itself but once i install backtrack in the unpartition
space i run into this problem.I read somewhere that the uuid's can change
when dual booting with either arch or ubuntu so i checked the swap uuid with the
"blkid" command, it matches fstab.I'm not sure what else i can tell you so let me
know if you need more info.

Well, could you give us the output of
sudo fdisk -l
so we can see how your harddrive is partitioned?
Some basic things to think on:
1) When you installed Backtrack, did you also install the grub2 bootloader from there?
2) Would it be possible to use /dev/sdax mountpoints instead of UUID?
