So I mistyped noatime in /etc/fstab; wished there was a way to test this first!
Anyway, since this is my ASUS Eee and my swap is on the SD card, by
pulling the SD card the boot halts and puts me into Repair Filesystem
mode.
Thing is /etx fstab is readonly. vi fstab won't let me save the file.

I assume you have done the normal "write a ro file" command (:w!) and that failed as well?
I really don't want to do a complete reinstall yet. I want to buy a 8Gb SD card first (and next time I am putting /usr on the SD card). So how can I edit this?
Yes, that did not work. I am home now, and will just do a reinstall. I
was planning one anyway as I figured out the 'best' way to distribute
everything between a 4Gb SSD drive and a 4Gb SD drive. When I just had
everything (/) on the 4Gb SSD drive as a ext3 partition, the install
failed. Moving /var/cache over to the SD drive worked. But now after
looking at things, I am going to put /usr on a 4Gb ext3 partition on the
SD drive, a 1.5Gb swap and 2.5Gb / ext3 on the SSD drive. I think that
is the best I can do until I get a 8Gb SD card, or figure out how to
unsolder the SSD drive and install a larger one....
