easy solution would be use a live disk to boot the system and repair the misconfiguration you caused. Potentially you could try placing init=/bin/bash on the kernel line if you don't feel like getting a live disk but that isn't guaranteed to work.

Did you make a back-up of fstab before editing it? I would normally always recommend to have a back-up.
