What error messages are being printed to the syslog and console on mount?  
(`dmesg` is your friend!)  Is lock_gulmd running?  Did you name the
filesystem with the correct -t option?

When you are using lock_nolock to mount the filesystem, are you doing it
from more than one node?  lock_nolock is ok for a single node, but it
doesn't do any locking, so if you mount it from a second node you will
corrupt your filesystem and see kernel panics.
