Remount a disk in read write mode

Submitted by abhishek on Thu, 01/01/2009 - 07:52
A few days back i was stuck when i wrongly edited fstab the system just didn't booted up each time i boot it went to recovery mode so i tried to re-edit the fstab but as the file system was read-only i was unable to edit, but lately i realized  that i can remount my file system as read write which i did using the following command

mount -o remount, rw /

adding this in blog so that new bies like me can remember this
