Do you have the system backed up?

If you have another machine configured EXACTLY the same you can copy the files from that /bin directory to yours.

If you have a backup (like on tape), restore it.

Otherwise, re-install.

Unlike Windows, you can not restore deleted Linux files. That is part of what makes the system secure.

Also, don't log in as root except when you really need to. The root log in can do a lot of dammage fast.

You can try copying the directory from another machine as suggested above
The machine need not be configured exactly the same as long as the /bin directory was not changed on either machine.
(Ensure same distro though).

Which is what I said. I was not much of an answer, but 10 points is not much of a prize. You ARE going to give me the 10 points, yes?
