Re: stupidity and disaster


I might be wrong, but I seem to recall reading somewhere that the shell
the system uses to boot up must be physically present in /bin and not
symlinked to somewhere else like /usr/local/bin.  The default setup is
to have /bin/sh symlinked to /bin/bash.  This is supposed to be a
security precaution to prevent some random luser from replacing the
default shell.  As others have suggested, you'll need to boot using your
rescue disk to get your system going again.
