/etc/fstab OR harddrive crash

Dear Debian folk,
	Important Question... If my hard drive crashed, and my machine boots
from the hard drive, how far in the boot process would it get?
	If I just messed up /etc/fstab (1), how can I fix it?
	I've got some rescue disks, but NONE for any of my 2.4.x kernels.
They were all too big to fit on a floppy. They are for 2.2.x
	After (IF?) this gets resolved, I'll have to learn to make a
bootable CD "rescue" disk. :)

	By the way, the boot goes for a while, obviously some modules are
being looked at, then I get a kernel panic, and the suggestion I pass root=
to tell it where to look for the hard drive.
	This happens with any of my kernels on the machine, or any of my
rescue disks.

	Thanks a ton, I'm really working hard to use Debian always.  I love
the multiple-arches, I love apt-get and dselect, but it ALWAYS seems like I
am having one trouble or the other :)

(1) trying to swtich from /cdrom to /cdrom0 and /cdrom1, maybe I
accidentally edited the wrong line, also?
