I would also mention that you don't have to list CD-ROM drives
in /etc/fstab because they would likely automatically mount discs in
user space but on a remote headless system, user space is likely not
useful. Fedora hasn't set up CD/DVD drives in /etc/fstab by default for
several versions now.

As long as you get /dev/sda1 (/boot) and /dev/sda3 (/) working on
reboot, the rest is fixable after booting.
