Created a partition and modified vfstab, recieve error after reboot

Hi there

Should mention, I am Oracle DBA. Installed Solaris 10 on VM Ware.

Created a partition, no hassle there. Modified vfstab, but made a typo, after reboot, received error message.

See attached...

Any ideas, be greatly appreciated.

Solved the problem, when I added the partition in /etc/vfstab I missed '-' sign.
