Why would you need to mount it in two different places (I presume
you mean at the same time)?

If you want to use it as a different file path string, then
mount it one way and create a symlink to it with the other

Or, if they don't need to both be mounted at the same time, you need to 
umount it from one mount in order to mount it the other way.  It doesn't 
like two separate mounts of the same device at the same time.
