no single user mode in freebsd 6.2

I have a production server which is unable to go in to single user mode. It starts just fine in normal mode, but it has a lot of hd errors and is becoming very slow. I want to repair these errors in single user mode, but it hangs at "mounting root on /". Is there a way to bypass this?
