-bash: cp: command not found

I get the error above whenever I try to run the cp command. Its seems to have gone missing?? Has anybody heard of something like this before? I'm using RedHat 9.0.

Failing somebody knowing something about this, does anybody know a quick workaround?

I don't know what could have deleted the command.

Try doing "yum install coreutils" then "rpm --freshen [path show at end of previous command]"
[path shown at end of previous command] is typically somthing like:
so example:
rpm --freshen //var/cache/yum/development/packages/coreutils-5.2.1-32.i386.rpm

The above commands reinstall/update the coreutils package which contains basic system commands.
