I'm always up for a good joke myself so I can't really complain about this one, but yeah, what the heII - I just fell for the (apparently) old joke to type the above command into terminal. Yeah, I'm an idiot, I know, but the question here is - what to do now?

The system boots up fine, although I've read it will go into an infinite reboot cycle after a certain uptime. I've got a recent Time Machine backup and a Snow Leopard Install disc at home.

Can I just install OSX over the ruined system?
Will that work at all?
Or do I have to kill the whole thing (via disk utility from the Leopard install disc), re-install OSX and get my data back with Time Machine?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a ton,
