Aaah the awesome power of root ;]
You could put the files back that you removed from your last backup, you do take backups don't you....otherwise maybe copy them from a similar machine. If you have to do a "repair" with the cd I would imagine you would have to be in front of the machine, although I am not a RH expert by any short case of the word.

Hope it works out for you.
