No commands are found?? Help

Ok, this is driving me nuts. I am logged on as root trying to check my version of XFree86. Every command I type says command not found. Examples below:

[root@localhost amdmhz]# run
bash: run: command not found
[root@localhost amdmhz]#

I am running RH9. Could someone tell me what I could be doing wrong? I just installed the workstation today.

Thanks for the help. I really like linux

Run the command

XFree86 -version

To run a command you simply type in the command name plus optional options and/or arguments.
