With a little work, I restored the /usr directory, but I now receive the following message:  
unable to qualify my own domain (hostname) -- using short name

Thanks in advance

PS Thanks for the quick response.

 Have you specified your own domain name, using the domainname command, and also by specify the default domain in /etc/resolv.conf?
  Also, make sure you have both the short and full names for your host on the same line in /etc/hosts

e.g.

134.148.224.157  qed   qed.newcastle.edu.au

To fix immediately, type

domainname -s <yourdomainname>

To maintain this fix across reboots, edit the file /etc/defaultdomain so that it contains your domain name.
