Try this, "echo $Path |grep sbin" to see if the /usr/sbin is in your path that is being used.

The only other thing I can offer is to copy the exec file to /sbin or /bin

Also, are you root when you do this or as a normal user? You may need to have the permissions modified by the SysAdmin.

You might need to add the line below to the bottom of your .profile

TERM=vt100
export TERM

Beyond that I don't have any other ideas.
