exec: 426: chroot: not found

Hello Everyone,

My first upgrade on my pure-64 has just bitten the dust.
I did not change the kernel which was installed in December 2004.

ran "apt-get update"
Using Synaptic, I did the update in batches, upgrading the things that
I use most first. The package that failed was "adduser", while trying to
remove some files and directories that did not exist. I re-ran the
update and it complained that there were files that could not be found
(in the archive).
Close Synaptic and could not run anything, including shutdown.

At reboot:
... my disks get mounted ...
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
exec: 426: chroot: not found
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Google was not my friend here and I cannot find this error in the

Your help will be greatly appreciated.
