You can boot with a rescue cd (I'm afraid I don't know fedora core) but with Suse you can boot into a rescue system, mount your root partition and edit the files.

You should also be able to do this with any live cd eg Knoppix, or even damnsmalllinux.

mkdir /mnt/rescue
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/rescue (substitute correct filesystem)
cd /mnt/rescue/etc
pico fstab

done!

You could use a livecd for editing it. Kanotix, Knoppix, Damnsmalllinux, Feather........... list goes on forever nowadays.

EDIT: arrr, slow typing.
