Default [Q] How can I mount /system as writeable in adb shell?

I thought I'd bricked my NT but it would appear that it is actually alive because it turns up with adb and I can get shell and then issue command su, but what I can't do is replace the old build.prop because file system is not writable. How do I remount it to be writeable from a shell please?

Thanks!
