  Do the other partitions mount properly?  You might try using a
symlink for /home/user to /media/mmc3/user instead if so.  I use a
script to mount other partitions that works flawlessly.  I didn't
modify an existing script, I created a new one in /etc/init.d which is
linked to /etc/rc2.d/S43(script name).  Unless you do something later
in the startup process that runs services from your SD partitions
there's no need to start it so early and it's better to create a new
script so upgrades don't stomp on your modified file.
