I don't think you need to do this if all you want to
do is mount the volumn. On the other hand, I don't
know what it does either. Can't help you there.

 After you make this directory the first time it will
remain through reboots so you don't need to run this
again until you remove it.

 I am not sure why mount shows that directory as being
busy. Maybe the vgchange command has something to do
with it. I don't know how to undo that. If you get the
proper line in fstab you can bypass the script. A line
like 

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /mnt/VolGroup/LogVol00       
               ext3    noauto        1 1

should work (on my syatem I made the directory name
"/mnt/new" and it saves me some typing. now I can
"mount /mnt/new" and "umount /mnt/new")

A non-guru solution to unmounting the volumn is 
 "shutdown -r now"
 Grins.
