Seriously, I detest vi so much that when I am stuck with having to edit a
file in single user mode with no other editor available, I will always
choose 'cat | sed' :D
mv /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.old
cat /etc/fstab.old | sed 's/^\/dev\/ad1s1d/\#\/dev\/ad1s1d/g' > /etc/fstab
if your disk were ad1s1d
You could try booting into single user mode, mounting /usr, and using ee
or whatever you normally use. And perhaps consider using a flat filesystem
You may need to 'mount -w /' to get into read/write on / anyway, in single
