You are getting that error because nmap is not in your PATH. I would recommend installing nmap to a standard location such as the /usr/local tree.

Thankyou i will try that. Will root recognize the command then ?

I find the PATH issues a little confusing i dont fully understand how they work
more reading i suppose.

Thanks for the help anyway.
