insmod command under RH 8.0

gee I feel stupid (but I did remember to search first, ask second!)

just installed RH 8.0 and have root user and two other user names.

when I try to install modules using insmod command, it works fine as root. i was under the impression that an 'su root' would allow me to run insmod if I was logged in as something other than does not seem to work...i get 'command not found' or something like that

it worked fine when i was using SuSE 7.3--is there something different for RH?
