I am not sure, but i think "mount /dev/adXsY /" will mount the drive R/W, so
that you 
can edit /etc/fstab (test with "mount" if it is mounted). Also you could use
Live-CD-ROM (disk 2) with the Fixit-Console, then do fsck and/or "mount
/mnt". You do have the 2nd disk, don't you? ;) 
That will render you workstation bootable, I can not help you with the
floppy though,
