    Which commands are you looking for? I don't know about Redhat but I know that some commands had to be installed separately.

    skyfolly, maybe you should see if linuxconf is installed? I have Mandrake and I had the same problem. Turns out i didn't have it installed, which was weird.

    What is linuxconf? I've never used that in RedHat or Debian. Either way, you can see if it's installed by 'which linuxconf' or 'whereis linuxconf'. If they both list nothing, then it's not installed. Now what you can do is actually install that program via RPMs or Debs.

    linuxconf is a tool which can do some of the command-line stuff for you(like mounting drives and such)

    At least, I believe so.

    Bpark, those methods only search within your path. Using find or locate would be better.

    Yes but most applications ARE installed within the PATH env variable.

    Depending on what your path is set to. I lot of software will install to /usr/local and from the distro's I have worked with, that is not in your default path.

    Well in Debian and Sun Solaris, /usr/local/bin is added to the PATH env variable. Of course all the software that are compiled goes to that directory. The other programs that are installed by packages get installed elsewhere, ususally in /usr/bin which is also included in the PATH env variable. Regardless, find and locate will work perfectly.
