Tried what you suggested Adam, and got 'command not found' for aptitude 
install apt.
Also had 'command not found' for sudo aptitude install apt.
In fact I also tried commands ls, man, sudo, and they all returned 
'command not found'.

Does this mean that all (most) of my commands are unavailable?

About a week ago I went through the update procedure. I started with 
Dapper 6.06 (from live CD), updated to Edgy 6.10, then updated to Feisty 
7.04. Things worked perfectly until last weekend when I tried to boot up 
linux and got this result. Would I presume that the live CD 6.06 would 
not now be of any use since I am 2 upgrades up?

I've alo tried recover mode at Grub but doesn't work either - same results.

Is there such a thing as a rescue disk that will repair my OS without 
losing my work?

Fortunately I am dual booting with Win98 (wash my mouth out), but it is 
a right pain rebooting backwards and forwards.

I look forward to any suggestions  -  elc
