Dear Experts,
I am using FreeBSD 6.1.
I have the following problem.
I typed “chsh” and changed the line: "Shell: /bin/sh" to "/bin/bash".
I thought, it will cause to start bash shell after login. Now I cannot login as root and I get the following error message:
"Su: /bin/bash: No such file or directory."

Is there anyway to fix it?
