Default bin directories not easily accessible

it seems to me in earlier versions of Fedora Core I didn't have to locate all of my essential commands in their respective folders. With fc6 I have to type the full path of ifconfig, service, httpd, etc. can anyone help me out.

I guess the path variable is not set correctyl in your root account. You can compyre them by executing the following Commands as root and normal user:

echo $PATH

you can set the PATH variable e.g. in the .bash_profile file in the users home directory.
