    bash: sudo: command not found

    Hi, I've received some suggestions about this problem, but I can't fix it

    I'm trying to install openssh, I did

    sudo apt-get install openssh-server openssh-client

    and I keep getting

    bash: sudo: command not found

    Then I did

    which sudo

    which: no sudo in (/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin/:/usr/games:/usr/lib/qt4/bin:/home/tony/bin)

    I have Mandriva OS.

    I'm new at this,

    Not all distros provide sudo. You need to use
    su -
    instead, which logs you in as root. Then you can install sudo. Isn't Mandriva an RPM distro? Apt-get works with DEB distros. See the documentation on web for Mandriva.
