[CentOS] fstab problem after a failed drive

I installed a sata drive on a SuperMicro with SCSI drives. No problem
with the installation. Everything went as expected as the os recognized
the drive and assigned /dev/sdc to the new 300 gig Seagate drive. I had
planned to use this drive for backup tarballs.
The drive had been functional for about a week with no problems.
Apparently it went out today when I tried to reboot the system. Now the
boot process brings the system up into repair mode, but mounts the /
partition in "read only" status. I can see that the original /dev/sdc
is present but /dev/sdc1 is not present.
I removed the drive completely and predictably /dev/sdc is no longer
The problem I have now is that I have an entry in /etc/fstab that
references the disabled drive that I am unable to change because I can
only get to /etc/fstab in "read only" status. I am sure there is way to
remove the entry to /dev/sdc1 but I have not been able to do so.
Any help would be appreciated
