ReiserFS Mount Problem

hi, i hope theres a few reiserfs experts around. iv written a init script to format a ramdisk with reiserfs and mount it at system startup. but ive been getting errors when it trys to mount it. heres the relevant lines from the script;

/sbin/mkreiserfs -q /dev/ram0
/bin/mount -t reiserfs /dev/ram0 /mnt/cache-ramdisk

the ramdisk isnt being mounted. the output from the script i redirected to a log. im getting the following error;

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/ram0,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

running "dmesg | tail" im getting;

ReiserFS: ram0: warning: sh-2011: read_super_block: can't find a reiserfs filesystem on (dev ram0, block 16, size 4096)

ReiserFS: ram0: warning: sh-2021: reiserfs_fill_super: can not find reiserfs on ram0

the strange thing is, if i try and mount it later, it mounts as normal with no problems. if anyone want any more info please just ask;
