This might indicate a timing problem - the init script tries to mount a
DASD that has not yet been fully initialized by the kernel (the return
code -EBUSY that triggers the "already mounted" message may indicate
different problems). Try to add a sleep 5 into the init script just before
the mount command that fails to check if this is the case.
