Me too. Back in the day, under repair boot condition it was normal for
the file system to be read only. It's been so long I've forgotten how,
but you could issue a command line to set the drive to r/w. Cripes, that
was back with lilo. Can he issue that from the grub boot appending it to
the kernel loader line? 

For Steven it might just be easiest to re-install. He could've been
running by now. Ric
