Ok, so I needed to uninstall something, so i dragged the script to my terminal, and it wouldnt work without root or fakeroot. so, I typed in sudo, then dragged the script, and it gave me sudo: command not found. so, insted, I tried su. it asked me for my password. I put in my user password, and I got sorry.

so, I then ran which sudo, and I got no sudo in /bin /sbin /usr/bin /usr/sbin.

so, this is where I am at. I am running Mac OS X 10.2.8. I did a minimal install, because the first time I got some issues, so I had to reinstall. Then, i added in the BSD subsystem, by running the .pkg file. the terminal says bash-2.05a$ when awaiting input. no "welcome to Darwin" as I have on tiger on my B&W. this is all running on a Wallstreet.

any thoughts?

It should be at /usr/bin/sudo

It should be at /usr/bin/sudo but that may not exit if you haven't installed the BSD subsystem package on the X CD.
