In any case,
I was editing my security settings on files this morning, the system eventually froze up (see above post for descriptive details) and at reboot I received a read only error for the file system and it won't boot.
fsck shows no errors, and fstab shows default settings; I can't change the fstab from default b/c the entire file system if read only... all the securities are set standard, ie; files are showing up with rwxr-xr-x for example, and the global files are rwxrwxrwx.
When booting the screen below follows:
Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.

at reboot several screens of messages scroll by, every single one of them FAILED.. for example
"rm: cannot remove 'var/lock/sybsys/syslog': Read-only file system." [FAILED]
When searching in google for this error everyone asks to remount, but attempting to remount gives me an error that the file system is already mounted... please help!
