shutdown command

Hi all, Im new with Linux and currently using Fedora Core 4.

I read in a book about "shutdown" command and tried it.
But it says "command not found" , what does that mean ?
I tried putting " shutdown -h now "

Also is there anyway to shutdown the computer right away ?
So far i have to log out first and then from the login page i press "shutdown"

It's /sbin/shutdown. You can add /sbin to your $PATH if you want as it's not included by default.
