Question SCREEN instalation problems.

Hi there, I searched the forums for releated threds, but was unable to find anything about instalation issues. I have been using Linux (mandrake) as a desktop for a year or so now, but I am still a little new to Remote servers etc.

I am trying to install screen-4.0.2 from source, on a remote Fedora Core 2 box via SSH.

I uploaded the code, and changed into the DIR no problem.

./configure worked fine, and presented this message:

Now please check the pathnames in the Makefile and in the user
configuration section in config.h.
Then type 'make' to make screen. Good luck.
Then I typed 'make' and it made the program like any compiler.

Then I typed 'make install' and it seamed to work ok, however it presented this at the end:

termcap entry (./terminfo/screencap) should be installed manually.
You may also want to install ./etc/etcscreenrc in ./etc/screenrc
Typing 'screen' in the terminal just returns:

[english_man@Silver screen-4.0.2]$ screen
-bash: screen: command not found
So it hasnt installed properly, have I missed a step? How to I manually install screencap etc? Do I need to be Root?

Any help is welcome!

Thanks in advance:
