AFAIK cd is a built into bash.. and bash is located in /bin so I'd try that first. If not I'd suggest booting with a rescue cd or floppy to restore more than just cd.. as what you did can really make your system unusable.

I never said it was in /bin but bash is, as cd is a builtin command of bash..

What distro is this we're talking about here? If its slack or redhat, you can use the installation cd's to boot from, etc.
