Accidentally deleted /Library/CoreServices folder

I did something stupid,
Playing around with my computer I wanted to change the login background and used this command in terminal:
sudo mv DefaultDesktop.jpg DefaultDesktop_org.jpg
sudo cp /Path/to/picture/you/want/to/use/image.jpg DefaultDesktop.jpg
I copied and pasted it without reading the command.
I dragged the image I wanted to replace it with, but when I went to go check it out, the background was blank or just blue. Any suggestions. I have leopard, and I left my upgrade disk at college, any ideas?
Thanks in advance for any help!

if that's all you did you shouldn't have deleted anything. It should have given you an error saying that /Path/to/picture/you/want/to/use/image.jpg DefaultDesktop.jpg didn't exist.
If you do
sudo cp -p DefaultDesktop_org.jpg DefaultDesktop.jpg
It'd be back to where it was.. or you chould just use the cp to copy the file you want to use to the /System/Library/CoreServices.mike
This machine kills fascists
Got # ? phear the command line!
