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.
