Hi guys im trying to install oracle 10g EE on FC5.I m following the notes relesed in the above site by ORACLE DATABASE.In the installation process descibed in it he mentioned following steps:
"Enable remote shell and rlogin by doing the following.

chkconfig rsh on
chkconfig rlogin on
service xinetd reload"
My doubt is do we need to give these commands in console or anywhere else?
I tried in console it's displaying a "bash error:command not found".
Can any body guide from that step please....

be root the programs are probably located in /sbin or /usr/sbin which is not in the path of regular users. Other than that, you absolutely _need_ to be root to be able to make changes to the running services and the services that get started up when the machine boots (chkconfig).


Also consider that rsh and rlogin can be a huge security problem! Could ssh do it dor you?
