The binaries for administrative tasks are placed in /usr/sbin. (BTW: you
can get a list of files belonging to a particular RPM package by issuing
rpm -ql <package> )

If I think about it, this is arguable - sbin contains binaries for
system administration which are usually used by root. But root is nobody
in AFS...

Hope that helps! Tino.
