If you messed up the fstab yourself, I would suggest you (always) run "mount -a" immediately after changing fstab to check your changes prior to the next reboot.

For your current predicament, try "emergency" mode as described at the bottom of this page. I just tried it on RHEL 6.3 and it appears not to run fstab, so should give you a chance to fix things.
