Probably /dev/hda2 doesn't exist at that stage of boot. Is it
created dynamically by udev? If so, perhaps there is a race
between udev and rc.sysinit's mount -a.
Can you configure udev to trigger a mount /dev/hda2 after it
creates the /dev/hda2 device node? I'm sure this is possible,
but I know next-to-nothing about udev.
