-o means "options will follow"

rw mounts read and write

remount, well, remount an already mounted system

this command won't work though as you need to provide more details regarding device filesystem, etc.

check man mount

Also, it will fail because of the space between "rw, " and "remount". It will give an error "mount: special device remount does not exist". –  January Sep 21 '12 at 10:51
