Thread-topic: [Xen-users] About: rm -f /bin /sh
I think he'd need an r with that f in order to delete the whole bin dir, 
wouldn't he?

Is it a copy/paste error, or is there really a space between "/bin" and "/sh"?

If there was a space, then you just deleted your entire /bin directory

See above, if /bin/bash doesn't exist, the ln .... won't work either.

See above (again)

Other then reinstalling or restoring backups?
