[ILUG] NFS Client problem / Linux Boot Problem

I think the problem is that I changed the mtab file (and possibly fstab) to
automatically connect to the nfs server... which isn't happening.
So, my question is: is there a way I can boot the machine to bypass the
nfs connections, like boot into single user mode?
