in the options field try putting 'defaults'
you can also jump to runlevel 1 'init 1', and when you login
mount / -o remount,rw
then you should be set ..to edit fstab and stuff.

I think perhaps the lack of anything in the options field made the
system think that your mounting it with the option of '0', which
may mean read-only for all I know :) Also linux will remount
a filesystem read only if there is excessive errors, either filesystem
or disk/controller based. but this process doesn't affect how the
disk is mounted the next time the system boots. You will see a message
like "Remounting <filesystem> read-only" after seeing a bunch of
errors on the screen if this occurs. It's only occured to me on
a failing disk.
