Need to install nohup


I need to install "nohup" on my machine, since i need to run some processes in the background. It is 2.4.20-18.9bigmem kernel, an older Red Hat version, and it does not have yum too. Is there a place i can download it from and install it?
I know nohup comes with fedora core 6.

Appears to be part of the coreutils. Maybe you could try updating that package:

Or better yet... compile from sources:

Thanks...
My current version is coreutils-4.5.3-19 and after looking at the rpm's page it looks like it should already be installed. I just have to figure out why it is not working..

Thanks benrose for your help.

no problem. Make sure that if you figure it out, you post the solution back on here for others who may have the same problem in the future!

very silly solution actually... nohup can be found in /usr/bin and my .bashrc file was not correctly configured for that command.
