Don't shoot the messenger. Bash is shell reporting the problem.

Executable named javac is not present in your path.

Do you know that "javac" is on your system? (Use find or locate, or maybe "man javac")

You need to have the pathname in your PATH variable, or you need to simply enter the full path---eg: /usr/bin/javac

To run something in the current directory: ./javac ("." means "current directory", and thus is read as a full pathname)

FYI, RH9 is yrs out of date and does not have updates, inc security. Highly recommend you get a current distro eg RH Fedora 7 or 8.
