Ok, you *really* need to read the manual, and the man pages. If you run
the rpm command I gave you, you'll see the full path to the command. You
can then run it ->using the full path<-. You can also add that directory
to your path by resetting PATH in your .bashrc.

PLEASE READ the man pages. It will save you a) a lot of grief, and b)
prevent folks here from being irritated that you didn't do more research
before asking.
