Original Question :

> the impression that it may come back to its original state, but the
> system kept displaying the mesg. that it cannot read /usr/lib/ and
> went into an infinite loop of booting again and again. I used the solaris
> cd to boot and got into the installtool window, where I thought I could
> change the permissions of the file back, by using the following
> procedure: # mount /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 /mnt # cd /mnt/usr/lib # <fix it>
> But when I changed to /mnt/usr/lib and checked to make sure that
> was present, there were no files being listed.( No files are present

Solution : was present under c0t3d0s6. While configuring ftpd, something
went wrong with, and I had to copy it again from the solaris CD.
