They're located in /sbin and its not in the path when you 'su', by default in redhat.
Therefore either use 'su -' or invoke the command with the path, ie '/sbin/modprobe'

to check what's in your path do a:

echo $PATH

to add "/sbin" if it's missing from that output just edit "/root/.bashrc"...

(i think it's .bashrc on redhat, i know it is on mandrake which is based on redhat...)
