installpkg cmd not found

What?! I thought "installpkg", "removepkg", etc. were built into slackware. Why am I getting command not found when trying to install aterm?

casey@Slacker:~$ dir
Desktop                 aterm-0.4.2-i386-1pyk.tgz  windowborder-themes  wallpaper
casey@Slacker:~$ installpkg aterm-0.4.2-i386-1pyk.tgz
bash: installpkg: command not found
Am I doing something wrong?

try to be root

like :
(enter your pass)
installpkg your_package.tgz

I think this is a path problem
