Running Mandrake with 2.4.18.

I don't seem to have hdparm?

[root at lear log]# man hdparm
No manual entry for hdparm
[root at lear log]# which hdparm
which: no hdparm in (...)
[root at lear log]# whereis hdparm
[root at lear log]# ls -l /sbin/hdparm
ls: /sbin/hdparm: No such file or directory
[root at lear log]#

Wouldn't that be a standard part of the typical distro?
