So you have rm. Try

ls -lF /bin/rm

You should get

-r-xr-xr-x  2 root  wheel  44448 Jul 14 00:26 /bin/rm*
   ^  ^  ^                                           ^

Maybe your rm lost its execution bit. Try repairing permissions with Disk Utility. You can also try a Safe Boot, but perhaps you'll have to reinstall Snow Leopard with its updates.

I just saw your message about a 0 byte rm. I guess the safest thing is to backup important documents and reinstall OS.
