When we startup our old desktop iMac G4 it "pings", proceeds to grey startup screen with apple and spinning wheel, then begins running script that reads as follows:

May 17 18:37:10 init: can't ecec /bin/sh for single user : No such file or directory
May 17 18:37:10 init: can't ecec /bin/sh for single user : No such file or directory
May 17 18:37:40 init: can't exec /bin/sh for /etc/rc: No such file or directory

And continues to repeat itself. I try using shift to startup in safe mode, but it still starts up this way. When I ran the single user mode, the command script appeared, but entering the fsck didn't do anything. And I would run disckwarrior but I can't get the disck drive to open. (no little button inside to get it to open.) What do I do next?


A little more info:
the computer is old and has been getting slower and slower and more and more glitchy, but has always started up and worked. our iPod was "lost" in it a long time ago, but no real issues beyond that. I appreciate any help anyone can offer! Thanks.
