lsmod and depmod

I was trying to get a 802.11b wireless card to work in RedHat 9, but when I typed "lsmod" I got the message "bash: lsmod: command not found" the same thing happened when I typed depmod. I think my problem is that these programs are just not installed. How do I install these files? I looked in the Add/Remove programs thing for RedHat 9, but I didn't find those two programs.

The thing is, they're in /sbin, which probably is outside your PATH environment variable. Try "su -" or simply /sbin/depmod and /sbin/lsmod
Luck with the card!
