Permission denied as root


*sigh* Hitting one stumbling block after another it seems. Attempting to install binutils on an ext2 formated partition. Attempting to run any config files yields a "Cannot execute ./config.guess: Permission denied" message. I've tried running it as root and the owner of the file, lfs. Initially I modes were all lit up "-rwxrwxrwt". Any help would be appreciated.

-rwxr-xr-x 1 lfs users 41397 2003-06-02 15:35 ./config.guess

check the permissions of /bin/bash.............
this is LFS, also make sure the symlink exists for sh also.............

/bin/sh > /bin/bash

The permissions for /bin/bash: -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 534104 Apr 24 12:42 bash*
The /bin/sh -> /bin/bash link exists.

What happens if you try 'sh config.guess'?
