I had the correct option for mounting (in grub):
kernel <some kernel> ro root=/dev/i2o/hda6

To work around the problem I reinstalled the system, where I put the / on a seperate disk, and /var, /usr, /tmp etc.. om the /dev/i2o/hda...

So there seems like there is a problem with the mount-program in the kernel.
