Very quick fdisk problem


I am just starting out on building my own linux system using my redhat 9 system as a host machine.

even though i su as root and cd to sbin directory and type fdisk -l i get command not found, i know its there as the ls command shows it is owned by root.

To i need an update? if so where i might get one?

Thanks for any insight

Best
Barry

My appologies i am being a right newbie here and completely in dos mode. I thought that if i cd to the correct directory. i would not need to use the absolute path.

I am just going to bang my head on the box in question. which should knock some sence into me.

best
