Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 4) issue


I have a server having Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 4) installed. I want to make it as Oracle 10g Database production server. But i think it's not ok to use this as production server. can we use it or not. is there any problem in installation or this is lowest version which don't have basic things like.

I can't use simple commands like

[root@mail ~]# /sbin/reboot
-bash: /sbin/reboot: No such file or directory
[root@mail ~]# locate
-bash: locate: command not found
[root@mail ~]# ls
[root@mail ~]# /usr/bin/reboot
-bash: /usr/bin/reboot: No such file or directory
[root@mail ~]#
[root@mail ~]# reboot
-bash: reboot: command not found

Please suggest me what to do i am new to Linux.

that version of RHEL appears to be fine, though not sure why you can't find those commands as shown above. The document for installing and the prereqs can be found here:

check your path first: echo $PATH
it should be usr/sbin
then try those commands, if not put a ./.....command to run them
