    Computer unable to recognize 'modprobe'

    I am running Fedora 7 and trying to get madwifi up and running. The documentation for it says "To load the driver module, type:"
    modprobe ath_pci
    I tried to do that, and here is what happened:
    modprobe ath_pci
    bash: modprobe: command not found
    What do I do from here?

    You need to be root in order to load modules. You should switch to root using the "su -" command. If you just use su, then you need to enter the full path e.g. /sbin/modprobe.

    Thanks a lot. That looks like it worked!
