Unhappy I moved /lib. Oh my god it died!!!!

I think I just pulled one of the most stupid stunts that any one inibiated may performe. I moved /lib; this never the less killed all built in commands as it killed the elf file interpreter. ahohhh. Now I need to move it back but saddly enough without cp or mv or ls this is futile. I need a good rescue disk that will not require a cd rom or the harddrive but will allow me root access to the harddrive.
Thank you,

there are some "one floppy" distro's, with wich you can boot, mount the HD and move the /lib back in place... take a look at and search the distribution list.

Most distributions have a rescue mode - if you have the CDs you installed from.
And redhat 9 has. I know of experience ....
