Unable to edit fstab in Fedora 5
I'm running Core 5 on one hard drive, then created another partition, /home2, on a second drive. I then edited fstab to mount /home2 at boot. Later I deleted the 2nd drive partition, but forgot to edit fstab before rebooting.
Now Fedora won't boot, and I get an error that it can't mount the deleted partition. I've tried to edit fstab in several ways, always as root, using nano and vi, but it won't allow me to save it or change permissions to save it, saying it is a Read-only file system. lsattr says fstab is all dashes, but chmod won't change the permissions.
It appears my entire first drive is read-only since I can't create directories at / either.
