xmessage vs mandrake

there exist a system command called "xmessage" in redhat. But it doesn't exist in mandrake. Does anybody know how to use x "xmessage" in mandrake?

I'm using Mandrake 9.1

[carlie@XP2400 carlie]$ locate xmessage

So, my system has xmessage.
Try urpmi xmessage as root in a console to install it.
