Hi,

>/etc/fstab can only be read after / is mounted. To mount / read-only you
>have to use the `rdev' command (Try `rdev -h'). To mount the root-fs
>readonly you have to use `rdev -R <kernel> 1' (or `rdev -R <kernel> 0´ to
>mount it read/write).
you should also check, whether an parameter given to the kernel overwrites
that kernel-flag, for example a line like append = rw in the lilo.conf...
