Problems with Redhat


Hi,

I just installed Redhat on one of my computers using the three cd images from the redhat website. I am used to using slackware, and can't figure out how to configure this using bash. One problem I am having is trying to get apropos to work. Everytime I try to use it to to find something it wont work. The command is there but appearntly there is no data base for it. The other problem is commands I used to use to set up the network such as dhcpcd. That command dosent appear to exist on this version of linux. I found a way to configure some of this stuff on kde, but I would really like to be able to do this on bash.

If anyone know how to at least get apropos to work, I would apricate that.

Thanks,

MarleyGPN
