Either you do not have ls in a 'chrooted' environment on a server, or it
is not statically linked (it should be!!) and shared libraries it uses
are not there, or /bin/sh is not listed as a valid shell in /etc/shells.
In the last case most likely you would be not able to login at all,
so likely this is not it.

If you are not using anonymous ftp then the above check list is
not it and I am as baffled as you are. I assume that seeing by
a server iso9660 file system is not an issue.
