    read only file system?

    I'm trying to send a file to my tivo. nosdd to be exact. But I can't send the file because it says my file system is read only. How do I fix this? I'm allow trying to delete some file, but I can't to that either. Here are some example problems.

    mount

    mount -o remount,rw /

    Your root drive was mounted read only to
    protect it. You can reverse this with

    mount -o remount,ro /
