Question sudo

Dear Slackers

I want to use the sudo command but every time I use it I have the response below:
gmartins@mozart:/usr/src/SlackBuilds/VMware$ sudo ifconfig
sudo: ifconfig: command not found
Does any one know what is going on??

thanks for any advise.

You don't have /sbin in your PATH so try:
sudo /sbin/ifconfig
