Have you got a live CD you can boo the system with? If not, I would suggest you get a copy of Knoppix. It will boot most systems. The partitions on the drives will show up as icons on the desktop. They can be mounted, at first that will be read only mode. You can change that to read write mode.
Then you can create a new fstab file to get you started.
