mandriva one live cd: bash problems

I got Mandriva One LiveCD and I booted my system with this but bash seems not to recognize some commands like lsmod when I use the console terminal.
thanks in advance

Probably lsmod is not in your path. To find out what the path is set to, on a konsole, type 'echo $PATH' without the quotes, and this is case sensitive. This will spit out the search path commands are search in.

lsmod is located in /sbin/lsmod on my system. You can run the command by adding the path to the from of the command; example '/sbin/lsmod' and it should work as a user if the command doesn't need root privileges. If it needs root privileges, su to root, and run the command.
