Dissapear urmpi

Recently I lost the urpmi command. When I typed it from console, I received the "command not found". I see the file urpmi (perl programm) under /usr/sbin, like gurpmi (perl programm, too). Under /usr/bin is gurpmi (executable) that works. In the path variable I see the usr/bin path, but not the usr/sbin path. It must be here? How can I put it there?

Thanks in advance.

You install as root. So do a
su -
then root password
and urmpi should be in your path. (/sbin is in root's path and not in a regualr users).
