How to find the path to the "Mount" executable file in RHEL4?


Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I am taking a Linux Administration class and I am having some difficulty with determining the path to the mount executable file. I need the path so that I can query the rpm to determine which rpm I need to reinstall to get my system back up. I tried the following command but got several errors:

find / -name mount

I am running in linux rescue mode.

Thank you,
Erik

try "which mount" or "whereis mount" it should definitely be /sbin/mount

if you had errors, you really should tell us what they are...

those errors are not a problem, ignore them.
