Lack of certain commands in Fedora Core 4


I am unable to find the 'modprobe, lsmod, insmod" commands in my Fedora Core 4 Installation(which i installed with the Everything option). I tried them in "su" mode. Also, trying to access them as sbin/(command) did not work either. I wonder what to do.. ?

Also, i disabled 'SELinux' during the installation

Try /sbin/<command> (you need the leading /). Did you use su or su -? Only with the latter do you get root's environment, which has /sbin and /usr/sbin in the $PATH (you can add the sbin dirs to your own $PATH too if you use these commands a lot os a non-root user).
