when i in rescue mode

#chroot /mnt/sysimage

This fails, giving the error message:

chroot: cannot execute /bin/sh: No such file or directory

#mkdir fedora4
#mount /dev/hdc fedora4

mount: Mounting /dev/hdc on fedora4 failed: No such file or directory

#cat /mnt/sysimage/etc/fstab

/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

#ls -l /dev


no /dev/hdc found

#ls -l /mnt/sysimage/dev/

no hdc file

Unfortunately for you, /bin/sh is actually a link to bash, so it's gone too. Probably your best bet would be to get a copy of just the bash binary from somewhere and copy it in, then use that to do the recovery that you intended to do in the first place.

Or boot from live CD, change /etc/passwd to use another shell and symlink it to /bin/sh

Then reinstall bash
