Cannot find fstab


I m using Red Hat Linux 4.0.
I have edited fstab file as root. it was working fine but i also take backup of original fstab file i.e. fstab before editing.
then i replace the edited file with original file again and there was no error.
When i Shutdown the system and boot it next day, the error occurs
"cannot find fstab"

when i open the file, there is nothing in fstab and the file is open in read only mode.

What should i do to make file editable so that i can logon to system

Thanks in Advance
