wow, that's colourful...

well you're already in bash as you can see by your prompt, maybe you don't have uname on your system for some reason. it should normally be in /bin/uname, try running it specifically. maybe your path is corrupted. is this the same for all commands?

Question BASH [Update]

I went into terminal, used su [Entered Password] - that got me to home/x .(Local)

I then tried to make bootdisk, got prompt for floppy! But, said no file or directory by that name.

I found the file in lib/modules, it was there.

I did an uname -r, got the kernal directory name (2.4.8-26mdk).

Tried drake??, to make bootdisk - but I get an 0byte file for the .img file | Won't boot!

Also I can't use bash$, doesn't know that command!

Moderator mentioned corrupt, may be - any program (And How) to run it to check for bad files, corruption, etc ?

i'm sorry i really don't know what you mean. to make a boot disk, try using mkbootdisk. look at the man page 'man mkbootdisk' for info on how to use it correctly.
