 bad mount of linux file system in fstab
Author: Hern42

I am quite new to freebsd although I'm making the jump from linux and not XP... it could/should help!
I installed Freebsd on my laptop along with a Debian and XP (for collegues at work compatibilities reasons) and tried to have access to my linux partition from freesbd. It worked perfectly with mount, so I modified /etc/fstab in order to have it mounted automatically at boot... but when I boot it tries to do a fsck_ext3... and cannot (maybe I dont have this packet installed...) and then stop the boot procedure and give me /bin/sh.
I tried to vi into fstab and remove the line where I mount my linux file system but I am in a read-only mode. So I cannot even get it on the screen (but I can cat it...)

Someone has a solution? How to enter in some safe/debug mode to remove this bloody line!!! Or maybe make it work otherwise...

I also apologise for my english and probably bad technical vocabulary... I am french for one and not too good with computer either.
