I become root and go to /etc. I do an ls and see ssh_config and it has a
non-zero size. It's also shown as rw. But I cannot cat it nor can I open
it with a text editor. There is also an sshd_config file that I can't
open or look at. Other files (key) are the same. When I try to access
these files it says they don't exist.

/etc/ssh/ssh_config must be readable by all users, writeable only by root.

sshd_config is only read/wirteable by root.

If you are indeed root and you STILL can not cat those files then
you have something seriously hozed and I would start diagnosing
that problem rather than worrying about ssh.

As John says, you are either making a mistake, or your system is
hosed. As root you should be able to vi those files.

If your system is not hosed, check to see if nscd is running, if it
is, kill it. I have seen this be the problem before.
