Maybe git is not in your path?  It's not even on my system so I can't  
tell you where it's supposed to be!

This will tell you where the program is:
	bash-$ which git

and this will tell you what your path is:
	bash-$ echo $PATH

If the location of git is not in $PATH then it won't be found. You  
could specify /path/to/git when you run it. Or add /path/to/  to your  
$PATH in .bash_profile. Find a line "export PATH=..." and, somewhere  
*before* the $PATH at the end put /path/to (or whatever it is).  You  
will need to quit the shell for this to take effect.

Of course, if it is already in your path we'd need more of a clue, but  
this is a start.

Justin C, by the sea.
