    If you're using grub2, you have to press 'e' at the boot menu to enter edit mode. Then search for the line starting with "linux" and append your additional options (like "1" to boot to runlevel 1) at the end. Press 'F10' to boot.

    Booting into any Linux live media like CD/USB and then mounting the partition you wish to edit is also a solution.

    Boot into a live cd, open a terminal and type in the following to become root:

    Code:
    su -
    Then do the following to take over the system and be able to make the amendments to fstab using YAST:

    Code:
    mount /dev/sdX#
    /mnt mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
    mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
    mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys 
    chroot /mnt
    yast
    This should start YAST and allow you to start the partitioner and make your changes. After you are done just close the terminal and reboot.
