Question screen command doesn't work (??)

Hi all, I'm running Redhat 9 and for some reason, my screen command just won't work! I'm running game servers from it and I ssh in from my windows machine on the same network. I'm pretty sure I've used the screen command before, however I can't get it to work now. When I try to screen something it says command not found.....any ideas?
