I have PromAX 5000.0.0.0 Application running under Centos 5.5 Linux working inside a VMware Workstation manager, but i wish i could rename my username and my user home directory FROM [dayo@localhost.localdomain~]$ TO [abco@localhost.localdomain~]$ . I have tried usermod command under #(root) but the system said "bash command usermod not found" i tried man usermod and the command i found did not respond when i invoke it on the terminal.

How will i rename my user home directory from [dayo@localhost.localdomain~] $ To [abco@localhost.localdomain~]$ AND also rename my login username from dayo TO abco.
