tree command not working


New FC 1 user. Installed without GUI on very weak machine. Can't get tree command to work. Have started/stopped Apache, Postgresql, Samba, etc. Can get a ssh fine. Most of the commands (like ls) seem to work. Not tree. Is it deprecated or something so there has to be a separate install?

I want to work just from the command line, using ssh, as I'm preparing myself to do some work on a rented server (or maybe a VPS). I know tree's not essential, but it'd be nice.

TIA

Do you have the binary file tree installed? What error message do you get? If you get 'command not found', tree may be a separate package. I had to install it on my Mandriva 10.1 system.

'Command not found'. That's it.

I'm a Linux newbie. How would I install the binary file 'tree'? Should it be on the distro disks? Or is there a downloadable one somewhere.

Many thanks.
