If rescue mode got them all right (and filesystem partitions have labels,
so it is possible, maybe, without the fstab - I do not know) then you
can issue the command:
That will start a new shell using /mnt/sysimage as "/", and the system
will appear more "normal" to that shell. Exiting the shell returns you
to the rescue shell which is still as it was before the chroot.
