Unhappy Boot Error


I made a rookie mistake that I can't seem to correct. I edited teh fstab file so I could mount Archos Jukebox 6000 on my Red Hat 7.3 system. I was able to mount the drive but now I am receiving the following when I try to boot:

Checking Root File System
fsck.ext3ABEL=/:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate
superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

No such file or directory while trying to open ABEL=/


Please tell me there is a way to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance,

Andrew

just use your distro cd's to boot to rescue mode, and then edit the file that should now be called /mnt/sysimage/etc/fstab or similar. you might need to mount the thing yourself...

mount /dev/hd?? /mnt/root/

for example, replacing the ??'s for the right partition

or just

mount -L "/" /mnt/root

should also work.

If you can get to your fstab, then you can comment the line out with a #.

You might also try to post the contents of your fstab here.
