finger - command


Hi,
Sorry for stupid question, but why I don't have "finger", "whois" and some other commands on my mandrake linux in console?
Just installed linux and wanted to practice unix command and whoops.
thanks

Well I don't know the exact installation process of a Mandrake system but I bet you can select (and deselect) packages to be installed. The problem would be then that you haven't installed the package that provides these tools (finger, etc). It should be in some sort of console package ...
