    Hi I made some changes to fstab trying to make a user capable to run configure. (BY the way I am trying to install courier-authlib). And I screwed up so now the system can’t boot . I have a fstab backup but how do I replace it? booting from a live cd maybe?

    You can boot from a live disc, mount your linux disc and fix the fstab.

    Aren't you getting the option to continue (CTRL-D) or enter root pass to get a maintenance shell when you boot?

    Can you show us the error your getting at the end of the boot process?

    Yes this is it! It Works! I boot form a Live CD mount /dev/hda3 and change the bad lines. Now everthing is fine.
