Do you get "command not found" or some other error? You say "don't work"
which is a little non-specific.
Things that occur to me:
1. $PATH is set wrong or unset. I know you did this from memory but a
simple typo in that script, ie ommitting the $ before PATH would have that effect.
2. Upgrade of C library or some such has broken the binaries. You should
get a different error if it's this.
3. A filesystem is not mounted. You almost certainly have /bin on the root
partition though so 'ls' would be working if this were the problem.
