Subject:	re-mounting a readonly partition read-write

I have a remote system that has an error in the vfstab file causing the box to
boot with the partitions mounted as readonly.
I know need to mount the partition as read-write so I can fix the problems in

Any ideas how I can do it (remotely - without the solaris cdrom)??
