fdisk isn't installed, or cannot be found with your PATH setting.

Check to make sure fdisk is installed/ PATH setting is correct.

If not installed:
- install fdisk

fdisk should be located in the /sbin directory. Try:

/sbin/fdisk /dev/sdb (Do not specify a partition ID)

If you used the su command to log in as root use 'su -' instead. This will use roots path environment instead of the regular users.
