Command runs as root but cant be founfd with regular user


I am going to try to explain this the best i can. I installed a prgram on Red Hat Fedora 4. When i start the program from the terminal logged as root it starts the app. When i log in as my regular user , even SU'd the command cant be found.

Can somebody help to run it as a regular user.
