question on access to res utility

I'm helping a new writer use tech pubs lab routers. In trying to use the res utility, he gets the following:

-bash-2.05b$ res show tp5
-bash: res: command not found

In giving the uname -a command he gets:

-bash-2.05b$ uname -a
FreeBSD 4.10-RELEASE-p2 FreeBSD 4.10-RELEASE-p2 #0: Mon Oct 25 16:23:23 PDT 2004     root at  i386

We are wondering if perhaps this is an access problem. Any ideas? Need any other information? Thanks.
