: With the warning from fvdl, I rebooted with the kernel from today, and
: `fsck -yf /home`ed; fsck decided that an entire directory of files were
: unlinked, and that it should relink them. Now I get this fun behavior:

I had this happen to me too.  Killed half my /lib files (including libc),
/sbin/init, etc. and AFAIK there was no way for me to specify a different
init (like /rescue/init) through the bootstrap (on i386).  Luckily I had
floppy drive and floppy disks around.  Then I rebuilt and installed the
world and everything is going fine.  Note, because everything is going
fine none of my filesystems (except the LFS ones) have been fsck'd (and
the LFS ones get fsck'd every single time for some reason) and at the
moment  fsck  is my main suspect.
