Question Error during booting-filesystem check failed

I am getting this error at time of booting ...
can not mount the /dev/hda9 partition...
basically I made a mistake while updating my /etc/fstab file ..
at the place LABEL=/ .... the file right now contains ABEL=...
I have mistakenly erased L ... thats why at time of booting the filesystem checking is failing.. now I want to make change in the /etc/fstab file but I am not getting the permission to make the change?
can anyone tell me how can I make the desired change ...

I have tried to do the desired change after logging in as single user mode and also used the maintenance CD but could't ..
basically I am no way getting the permission to make changes in the /etc/fstab... it is opening in read only mode ...
The line in the /etc/fstab that I what to change right now is...
ABEL=/ / ext2 defaults 1 1
and It should be
LABEL=/ / ext2 defaults 1 1
can anyone help me to solve the problem....

if you created a boot disc, that will get you in... if not you can try to goto into single user mode with the command Linux 1 if your using lilo as your boot loader...
also, if not boot disc/rescue disc... some distro's have a rescue mode on the install cd.
