I had the same problem, and as Gerard suggested,
it was the mountfs script that didn't mount the root fs
properly (due to some... *ehem* boot script customization)
;) (btw, I forgot to thank you, so thanks, Gerard - you were
right... again)

GB> Check mountfs, see if you got the message "Remounting root file system
GB> read-write mode..."
