  I cant do anything from the boot loader, because i cant cd to /usr to

  Any suggestion?.

  The system is on a virtual machine.

Have you tried this?

1. When the countdown starts, right after the BTX loader has finished, press any key other than <enter> for the prompt.
2. Type boot -s to boot into single user mode.
3. When asked for a shell for root, hit <enter> (this will give you the sh shell). Alternatively, type /bi n/csh, then <enter>. This will give you the C shell, and tab completion. Essential if you are to do much of anything, IMO.
4. fsck -y
5. mount /usr
6. Do whatever it is you want to do in /usr, and reboot.

You may have to provide the absolute paths for fsck and mount, I don't recall at the moment if PATH is set in single user mode.

Hope this helps!
