A call to Linux geeks

Okay, so my sex game Onyx is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux. I keep several Linux virtual machines handy for testing and debugging--Ubuntu, Fedora, and so on.

I'm maintaining some of my Linux systems, and I go to install some tools associated with my virtualization into Mandriva, formerly Mandrake Linux, one of the various Linux flavors I keep handy.

I type:

sudo sh /mnt/cdrom/parallels-tools.run

and it responds with

bash: sudo: command not found

WTF??! Mandriva's defult install doesn't include sudo? Isn't that, like making a motorcycle that doesn't include a seat, or a house that doesn't include windowpanes? How in the name of all that is holy do you release a Linux distro without sudo? Am I missing something here?
