Thought I would take a look at man here are my
results:

winstephen@linux:~> man -k mke
mke2fs (8) - create an ext2/3 filesystem
winstephen@linux:~> mke2fs dev/fd0 1440
bash: mke2fs: command not found

Interesting, tell me what mke2fs is, but then when I
try to do it I am told "command not found." Duh, then
how does man know about it?
