yum-utils-manager not working in rhel 5 even though yum utils is installed

I'm working in redhat enterprise server 5.  I have yum-utils (yum-utils-1.1.16-21.el5.noarch ) installed.  However, when I try and use the yum-config-manager command I get:

bash: yum-config-manager: command not found

help!

Thanks!

I did #whereis yum-config-manager

I just get

yum-config-manager:

I am running as root.  

PATH=/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_51/bin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/home/Office/bin

I don't think yum-config-manager is there... How do I get it?  I have yum-utils installed.  The latest via yum install yum-utils.

use this (will take a while)

find / -name yum-config-manager

so far we have established that the executable is not in your path, which is wby you are not finding it

Find did not locate it.  It does not appar to exist on the machine :(... How do I get it?  I thought it came with yum-utils.

Ok, I'm in the CLI article and trying to add an Open JDK repostiroy.  However, I can't find what the settings hsould be.  Also when I add it to the repo (what I think the setting might work) it gets erased from the file even though I save and quit as the superuser.

Also, it looks like the linked article is for RHEL6 and I'm on RHEL5.  I've confirmed that the yum-utils I'm working on does not have a yum-config-manager.  I have no way to get the more recent yum-utils to my knowledge or that any was release for RHEL5.  So I need to edit the file but can't seem to find out how to do this properly.

if you have RHN login details then try checking out over there for the latest version of it.

I'm trying to add the repository to open JDK so I can install JDK using yum.  I tried using the regular grpahical installer and it results in an installation that doens't work right.  I'm attempting to fix that via another thread.  However, I thought a better way might be to use yum to install and configure everything as an alternative.  Addtionally, i'm going to eventually need packages from other repostories aside from the default RHEL 5 repos.

create / edit a file in /etc/yum.repos.d to contain the repository you want to use, then do

yum install jdk

Not sure .. How GUI works.. but the reference link i have given is the one i tried and it is working perfectly fine and even it is fine to edit /etc/yum.repos.d/ manually.
