Edit "read-only" /etc/fstab from "System Recovery#" (without boot cd?)
 
Doh!
I made a typo in the mount entry of a RAID partition, and specified a boot-time filesystem check.
On my system, that partition does not even exist at this point ( super crude raid, don't ask ) so fschk fails, and drops me into "System Recovery#"
The best fix would be to remove the typo in fstab, but the root filesystem is read only.

So, I go to a boot disk, boot from it, mount my root partition somewhere else, fix the typo and reboot. No big deal, but many extra steps considering that the root partition was always fine.

So, is there any way to get around this kind of situation without booting from different media?

Thanks!
