Problem Help! - FreeBSD

Hi, In my haste I edited my rc.conf file and knowing well that if I make a mistake I will get hung the system at that point. I need an expert help to get me out of this situation. I spent days building the system, I don't want to do the whole thing again. I must have forgot a quote in my rc.conf file and now when the system got rebooted it's asking for pathaname for the shell. I am not sure of the next step. Help!! Thanks...

    Well, while we're waiting for an expert to reply, try hitting enter when
    it prompts for the pathname for a shell. You'll get the sh shell. Next
    type:

    mount -a

    Then

    vi /etc/rc.conf

    and fix the typo.

    Hello Viraj,

    Wednesday, March 23, 2005, 9:41:05 PM, you made these points:
     
     

    well, if you are prompted to the path name of the shell, you have to
    type there full path-name e.g. /bin/sh. this is necessary to get to
    the single user mode in next step. then, you will have to edit
    /etc/rc.conf again and fix your typo. save & exit && reboot.
