Can't Use lsmod/modprobe...

Why is it that I can't use lsmod in a shell, it says that bash is not found. I don't know exactly how this works so...can someone help me, I just want to see the modules I have loaded and probe a module if needed. Thanks.

The directory where the actual program files are located are probably not in your $PATH. Search these forums if you wish to know how to change your $PATH, it is covered almost on a daily basis.

If it's not critical to you, just type out the full path: /sbin/lsmod and /sbin/modprobe should do the trick.
