Hi,

are you sure bash is installed? What if the output of the following?
Code:
file /bin/bash
Also, exactly which commands show that error?

Almost sounds like something clobbered the PATH environment variable.

What does "echo $PATH" show?

If it is not defined (or more likely very short...) you can try things like:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin:/bin

This will append /usr/bin and /bin to the path.
