you should never change mtab. it is maintained by mount automatically.

from the lilo prompt type:
(if you have a custom lilo setup, change linux)
a handy way of diagnosing problems is to start services by hand from
single user mode - if it goes wrong you can ctrl+c out of them, eg
should mount your nfs volumes. If you have problems, just ctrl+c, fix
the prob, and try that step again.
