    You can boot from a live disc, mount your root (/) partition and edit the /etc/fstab.

    i assume ur using Redhat/FC --Use installation CD , and choose rescue option
    and edit fstab file.
    I did this many times not a big issue to worry ..

    Thanks all... It is sorted but I am not sure how I did that. I didn't use boot disc...but did several umount and mount on various volumns...may be that sorted. Anyways thank you all for your help.

    regards and good luck
