RH8.0 PATH issues


I seem to be having a problem with my paths on different users. I installed Samba as root, but only root seems to be able to use the included programs such as smbclient and smbmount. My regular account gets an invalid command error when trying to use these programs.

I don't know squat about how to add these paths on RH8.0. I looked at RH's website and saw something about a .bash_profile that you can edit, so I looked in there. The PATH statements in the root profile and my regular account profile seem to be the same. Can anyone help?

you can't mount filesystems not listed in /etc/fstab as a non-root user. it's a security risk.

what doest it mean "to be able to use" ?
for example:
if smbclient cannot be found it is a matter of path
if smbclient cannot be run it is a matter of improper privilidges
