I can ftp into the touch thru WinSCP and copy/erase files, but when I use Putty, I can log in, get to the # prompt, but every command results in a "not found", I typed 'mv', and get 'mv: not found', can anybody help?

Some installs of the BSD system for the ipod it may place the commands in the /bin directory. On my when i want to use one of the commands i have to make sure that i have /bin before all the commands.
