I would guess that this is probably just a path error. You might be able
to start vipw by just typing "/usr/sbin/vipw". If this solves the
problem, you might want to add /usr/sbin to the path (it should be there
by default, but that depends on what account you're using to log in
with). You can set the path in the ~/.profile hidden file.
