fstab messed up: stuck in boot process; help needed!



Hi,
 
By accident I have put an entry to /dev/hdb1 and /dev/hdb2 in my
/etc/fstab, although there's no 2nd harddisk in my system.
When I rebooted, the boot process gets stuck during or
after the fsck and stops with the message to enter the
root password for maintenance.
When I do that, I get the prompt "(Repair filesystem)".
 
I thought I now simply edit and correct the /etc/fstab file and
reboot; but, damn, the root filesystem is mounted as readonly.
Whatever I do, it remains readonly.
 
Actually, I find this a rather silly situation: I get a readonly
filesystem for maintenance. What the hack can that help me....
 
Anyway, can someone please tell me what to do in this case.
 
Thank you very much!
Rob.
