This is similar to a problem we have seen in Linux 2.6 and 1.4.2. On one
host, I vi a script, and on another host I try to run it, and it gives me a
File Not Found, and an ls -l shows the ? like you're getting...
I think this was discussed here  and is (or might be) fixed in 1.4.5.
If this isn't akin to your problem, we may need more details...
