Many thanks to all who responded to my problem. You are a great bunch.
On the advice of several of the list members, I booted in Knoppix. Instead of
letting Knoppix mount the file systems in the default read only, I
manually mounted the root partition in the RW option. That did the trick.
I edited the fstab file back to  the way it was before I screwed up, and
everything has returned to normal.
