What do you mean by the "rescue mode"? The rescue modes I have used
do not require a login.

What type of failure? There are some types of failure that require
you do repair them by booting in the single user mode, or booting
from the install CD/DVD and selecting the rescue mode.

Because mount does not know if the system can boot without the
partition being mounted. Usually, if it can not mount a partition,
there is a problem with the system, and you should repair it before
doing a normal boot.

It is fairly easy to boot from the rescue CD, or in the rescue mode
of the install CD/DVD, and then edit fstab from there. You should
probably read about using the rescue CD before doing this.
