Linux Tape Drive mt commands

I have a tape drive that I'm trying to uses in Linux. I see all the documentation on-line says that you need to uses the mt commands to do stuff with the tape. I can't seem to find them any where on the system and I also can't find where to install them on to the system. I'm using Redhat 5.0 and Cent 5.0 between the two drives.

Thank you,
