sshd won't start

Hi there...

Ok, i'm newbie to slack/linux and I need a great help.

I'm in trouble with sshd. My daemon does not start. When I type "sshd" (as root) returns "sshd re-exec needs full path"(or something like this). I've tried the full path "/usr/sbin/sshd" and "/etc/rc.d/rc.sshd start", but after this a "ps ax" does not show sshd alive. What i'm doing wrong??

System is Slackware 11.0 Linux 2.4.33.

Thanks for help!
