Thanks for the responses from the following people:

Jon Andrews 
"Hirchert, Dale L" 
Andrew Hall 
Grzegorz Bakalarski 
Joshua Clark 
Dan Astoorian 
John Benjamins 
"Marble, Jeff R" 
Charles Morris 
Michael Horton

I used the solution devrived from Charles Morris
suggestion.  I openned another terminal from another
unix box and type 

%mv /.profile /tmp

then I copy the whole line including the "enter". Then
paste the whole line to the console of the messed up
server. It works.

btw, I tried ctrl-M, ctrl-J. No luck and I don't have
any other user accounts on this server.

someone messed up the root profile and the enter
key(return key) on the keyboard was mapped to

I can't issue any commands at this time since there is
no "enter"  any more. Except booting  from cdrom, is
there other way? 

I have console connections and system accepts telnet
but not rsh.

thanks in advance,
