Yes, /usr is mounted. When I say rebuild, I mean I stuck the FBSD 6.2 CD erased the old installation and reinstalled.

My first guess would be that when you rebooted into single user mode, your
/usr partition wasn't mounted so find wasn't accessable.

Not sure how you managed to "rebuild" the machine and still have find missing,
but I can't really guess that without knowing what you meant by "rebuilt".

Is /usr mounted?
