Messed up mount points with rescue


I use ClarkConnect 3.2 Home edition as a server for my FLAC files. It came with SlimServer so it seemed like a good choice. A couple of weeks ago it stopped working, so I plugged in a monitor and saw there was a problem with eth0, as well as the following error messages during boot:

Bad format on line 2 of /etc/fstab

Mounting local filesystems: mount point 1 does not exist [failed]

Determining IP info for eth0 [failed]

I put in the boot disk and entered 'rescue'

I copied all the messages as I went along. Here they are:

The rescue environment will now attempt to find your Linux installation and mount it under the directory /mnt/sysimage. You can then make any changes required to your system. If you want to proceed with this step choose 'continue'. You can also choose to mount your file systems read-only instead of read-write by choosing 'Read-Only'.

If for some reason this process fails you can choose 'Skip' and this step will be skipped and you will go directly to a command shell.

The following file systems for your Linux system were not unmounted cleanly. Would you like to mount them anyway? /dev/hdb1

Your system has been mounted under /mnt/sysimage.

Press <return> to get a shell. If you would like to make your system the root environment, run the command chroot /mnt/sysimage.


I then typed EXIT and the system did a reboot and I got these messages:

fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/mnt/backup'
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/tmp'

After that I can enter the root password for maintenance.

I did some google searching on that, which is how I found this forum, however I am afraid to do anything in case I make it worse. I did find a thread that had some interesting info about editing /etc/fstab, but I'm not sure how to do that or what to do to fix the error.

I need some instructions on how to edit fstab and what to edit it to. Can anyone help? I have three hard disks (primary master, primary slave and secondary master)

thanks in advance
