rm command not working under rescue mode


I had to boot from bootable CD as my RH9 won' boot because the disk is full and it got corrupt for that reason. So, I booted in rescue mode and mounted the root partition into a directory...but when I issue the command rm to delete unwanted files, it says cannot execute binary file. Any help?

Thanks.

but when I issue the command rm to delete unwanted files, it says cannot execute binary file.
Which rm? The /bin/rm on the cdrom or the one in /sysimage/bin/rm?

It shows:
-/bin/sh: /usr/bin/rm: cannot execute binary file.
