Default Help with command 'service'


I'm currently working my way through 'Beginning Red Hat Linux 9’, which has been great up until chapter 9. The book goes into the details of setting up server services, explains how to start the relevant service, and then try’s to explain how to control that service from bash.

My bash prompt doesn’t have or support the command 'service' nor can I locate any such command on my system, therefore doesn’t work and I can't progress through the chapter, (which is annoying)

Does anybody have any ideas on this? Any help would be great??
