Sorry, I'm posting this message in Windows. Do you know hwo to boot in single user mode. I think the file is a symlink gone bad. It says the date is 1997!

sounds like jiggered up permissions likely.
where is it?


are you logged in as root?
do you have rwx permissions on the directories?
can you 'cd' to the directory it's in?
can you then do an 'ls' ?
