Boot single-user. (Section 7.3 of the FreeBSD handbook tells you how).
You'll get a root shell, before any disks are mounted (except /, which
is mounted read-only). Do something like "mount -a" to mount everything
in /etc/fstab (so you have /usr/bin/vi & enough support to run it, and
/ becomes mounted read-write. Fix /etc/fstab. "mount -a" again to make
sure you didn't typo in /etc/fstab! Reboot.
Good night little fishey-wishes.... I've counted you, so no
sneaky eating each other.
