Not able to update etc/fstab


I have installed Redhat linux 9. After i configuring the squid proxy I
restarted the machine.

Now it is not booting....

The System hangs when the "Updating /etc/fstab".After I pressing
Ctrl+Alt+ Del for restarting it gives the message "/usr file system is
busy.Resources in use" FAILED.

Actually I restart the linux machine from another machine through
telnet. now it is disconnected.

Tell me what is the exact problem. Now i have to boot the system now.
because all of my squid configuration is residing there.

I hope that you're not facing a serious problem now.
So you will probably have to boot into rescue mode with the 1st shrike CD.
Then check within /mnt/sysimage your /etc/fstab and your filesystem using fsck
But if there is any possibility backup your squid config and other important files.
